Read 2 Samuel 23.
These are the last writings of David in this book. He heard and communicated leadership principles that he received from the LORD.
His character and ability as a leader may be evaluated by those closest to him. The descriptions of his mighty warriors explain that these men were the best of the best in all of Israel.
What does leadership look like if it is just and done in a way that understands one’s accountability to God? Here are a few of David’s comments from verse 4.
1. It is like a new day dawning; a fresh start with lots of light on every place.
2. It is like the sun shining on a perfect day. Everyone enjoys it.
3. It is like a good rain that waters everything for growth.
The opposite is true when leadership is unjust and ungodly. There is darkness and many things taking place unexposed. It is not a happy time. Growth and prosperity are stagnated.
David's testimony of his leadership was: "Does not my house stand so with God?" May that be the testimony of all our nations' leaders.
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Proverbs 14:34
