Your daily dose of Proverbs:
“It is not for kings, O Lemuel-not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer” - 31:4.
Leaders do not exist to serve their own needs and desires but to serve the highest priority needs of others. What's more, leaders must not be intoxicated with power or their own importance. What kind of leader are you? What kind do you want to be? Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar and Herod are examples of poor leaders; Joseph, Joshua and David are examples of good ones. For an explanation of what makes a good leader, read what Paul had to say about Timothy in Philippians 2:19-23.
