Godly Leading

Today's reading: Psalm 72:1-20

In his old age, David writes a prayer for his up and coming son and the future king of Israel, Solomon. This prayer is full of wise instruction and really lays out before us a number of qualities of a godly leader. And if you don't think you're a leader, let me challenge your thinking on that. While I'm pretty sure most of us aren't kings (LOL) and we may not hold a formal leadership position, we all have a powerful influence on the people around us. And, people who don't yet know Christ are watching us. All that to say--many of the principles David prays that Solomon will follow, are good for us too. I was particularly drawn to verses 4 and 12-14 where David's love for people shines through as he writes about helping those in need.

Is helping and caring for people who are in need a priority for you? Is there someone in your neighborhood, at work, at school, at church, who you can reach out and help this week? Tami
