good leaders

Psalm 45:2-5 (JDV)

Psalm 45:2 You are more handsome than other sons of Adam; charm flows from your lips. That is why God has empowered you forever.

Psalm 45:3 Mighty warrior, strap your sword at your side. In your height and splendor –

Psalm 45:4 in your splendor ride triumphantly in the cause of truth, humility, and justice. May your right hand show your awe-inspiring acts.

Psalm 45:5 Your sharpened arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies; the peoples fall under you.

good leaders

I’m looking at the leadership traits that are portrayed in this psalm about the king.

  • appearance – Good leaders are careful not to appear sloppy or shaggy.
  • words – Good leaders know what to say, and what not to say.
  • tools – Good leaders have skill with the instruments they need to get the job done.
  • bearing – Good leaders ride confidently into their calling.
  • passion – Good leaders care about things that matter, like truth, humility and justice.
  • conflict – Good leaders do not avoid conflict, but see it as a way to demonstrate that their calling is from God.

Lord, instill in us the qualities and attributes that make good leaders.
