GODLY LEADERS – Thu, Aug 16, 2018

2 Chronicles 13:20-21 KJV

Neither did Jeroboam recover strength again in the days of Abijah: and the Lord struck him, and he died.

[21] But Abijah waxed mighty, and married fourteen wives, and begat twenty and two sons, and sixteen daughters.

It is interesting how the measure of the successes of kings in the past was not only a function of the vastness of their kingdoms but also the size of their families.

The number of wives and children (especially sons) a king had, was definitely a sign of his wealth and power. And for Jewish kings, this was supposed to be precipitated on the rule of the Law of Yahweh. David, Solomon, and the rest of the kings of Judah, justified this assertion.

In our days, such assertions have rather brought more trouble than good… only the God-factor has remained. Greatness has been achieved equally by leaders have solely relied on God, irrespective of the expanse of their territories or family sizes.

Leaders who have waxed strong in the Lord their God.
I pray God establishes your leadership in this order, and bring you successes that are devoid of anything incriminating.

Have a blessed day.
