Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Kings 5:7
When Hiram heard Solomon’s message, he was greatly pleased and said, “Praise be to the Lord today, for he has given David a wise son to rule over this great nation.”
Hiram was the king of the Sidonians. He was often an ally of King David during David’s rule. When David handed off the baton of leadership to his son Solomon, Solomon sent a message to Hiram and said, “Your people are the best feller of trees in the world. I want to hire your country to prepare for our building of the temple of the Lord.” When Hiram heard this, he gave praise to God because God had given David a wise son to rule in his stead.
Here’s what I’ve learned in my six decades of living. “People Love Wise Leadership.” That’s right! The world is so full of leaders asking, “What should I do now?” that they are thrilled when they run into leadership that brings wise counsel and certainly knows where they’re going and how to get there. How many are tired of leaders who wait for the questionnaire to be filled in and returned and broken down to know how to lead the people they’ve been called to lead? How many are weary of polls? How many are weary of political correctness? How many want heaven-sent leadership? How many are ready for a woman or a man who will stand up for what is right and not just expedient? I thought so. You know why? Because “People Love Wise Leadership.”
I want to take my leadership from You because You are the giver of all wisdom. I love wise leadership. That’s just one of the many reasons I love You, my Lord. Amen
