Qualified Leader

"He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God." --II Samuel 23:3b (KJV)

These were among the last words of King David, words given by God.  These words stipulate two requirements for one who would be a leader.  1) He must exercise justice toward men and 2) he must honor God.

Think about that.

And have a wonderful Sunday!

Love that verse and your commentary David.

Just finished, "Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption", a gut wrenching book about justice in America. In it the author says:

"The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated, and the condemned."

The book is a difficult read but I highly recommend it.
