What to look for in a leader

Read: Proverbs 28

Have you ever been led by someone and thought, “I’d follow them anywhere”? How did you feel in those circumstances?  Empowered, refreshed, motivated? Maybe, your experience was different and you questioned your leadership and felt oppressed.

While stature and title can be a part of leadership, they aren’t the deciding factors.

For most of us, to be a leader means to be in charge, to be the boss. While stature and title can be a part of leadership they aren’t the deciding factors. In Proverbs 28, God gives us a clear picture of what it takes to be a good leader:

It may surprise you to realize that you can lead right where you are. You don’t have to be in charge to bring stability. You don’t have to be the boss to be fair or respect the law. And you don’t have to be at the helm of a big organization to benefit from wise counsel. Pointing out these qualities in others and refining them in ourselves is a great way to start leading wherever we are.

Reflect:

  • Does anyone come to mind who exemplifies the qualities of a leader listed here?  Reach out today and let that person know he or she is leading well.   
  • Which one quality of a good leader do you feel is your weakest? Ask God for help! He can strengthen you in this area and show you how to take steps to change.
  • When was the last time you prayed for your leaders? Leaders at every level benefit from our prayers and support.
