YOUR SUBORDINATES REFLECTS THE NATURE OF YOUR LEADERSHIP STYLE AUTOCRATIC, DEMOCRATIC, THEOCRATIC, LAISSERFAIRE OR SUPPRESSIVE!
MEMORY VERSE: "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn" (Prov 29:2). BIBLE READING: Proverbs 29:1-2 1 ¶ He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. 2 ¶ When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. L
Leadership is a very crucial subject in both secular and spiritual
assignments. Destinies have been dashed or delayed by the absence of
good leaders. Most families, churches, societies, states, and even
nations are where they are because of the quality of leadership they
have. Everywhere and in all facets of life, good leaders are sought for.
People are looking for whom to follow. If the right leadership is in
place, you can be guaranteed of good followership. No matter how
laudable the goals and objectives an organization may have, if there are
no good leaders to harness the resources of that organization, nothing
good can come out of such an effort. "When the righteous are in
authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the
people mourn" (Proverbs 29:2). A lot is expected from us today as
believers. If you claim to be a believer yet your reign as a leader is
causing sorrow, tears and regrets, then you are a wicked fellow, not a
believer. Believers bring joy to the sorrowful, bring progress and not
retrogression. What is your reign as someone in authority bringing to
the life of those under you? The goal of governance is to positively
affect and transform the lives of the governed and to bring glory to
God. Can those under your leadership thank God for your life? Some
people are only enduring the rule of their leaders-spiritual and
temporal. Surprisingly, some church leaders have become so tyrannical
that their subordinates are afraid of expressing their minds. When this
continues, it will lead to a high membership or ministerial turnover.
Are you a leader? Are those under you rejoicing or sorrowing? Remember,
you shall account for your subordinates. Are you delaying the payment of
salaries and other benefits of your subordinates? Do you want God to
withhold your own blessings for as long as you sit on those of others?
Repent today! Turn a new leaf! Where you have offended or oppressed
others, restitute today before it is too late! Many leaders are dealers.
Are you a dealing leader?
THE FATHER’S BLESSING "I pray for
you today as a leader you will not be guilty of the sins of your
subordinate, you leadership will bring rejoicing and joy to your area
and circle of influence. You will be effective in all your area of
leadership and the Lord will be delighted in your activities in the name
of Jesus’ Name” (Amen)
ACTION POINT FOR TODAY Take a
written audit of your reign or government. Ask your subordinates to
write freely and anonymously. Evaluate this and make amends.
