A Kingdom Leader is interested in building relationships, sharing struggles and building up one another. Those friendships are quality investments in the future. He surrounds himself with faithful and qualified leaders who can assist him in carrying the burden of leadership no matter where it leads.
Do you have a alliance with someone you consider your Timothy? How about someone you consider your Paul? Is discipleship and mentoring a value reflected in your friendships? Who is close to you? Is that person qualified to accept leadership with you? Are you entrusting leadership roles to them? Or are you investing in the wrong people?
Daniel 2:49 (NIV)
49 Moreover, at Daniel’s request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel himself remained at the royal court.
Daniel and his friends shared all the heartbreak, the values of excellence and the need for prayer with one another. Their individual and collective focus on God the Father made them a formidable witness in an ungodly society.
