A Kingdom Leader is always building close relationships with others in their world. She ties her heart and mind to others that will league together and conspire to make progress.
Who have you linked arms with in ministry? Are your life goals bound up with another? Do you have a close friend that is knitted to your heart, mind and soul? What other ministry have you joined with to increase the yield of fruit in your community? Are you being a good steward of what God has given you?
Consider the relationship between David and Jonathan. Their hearts were tied together and carefully knitted into a strong friendship and partnership.
1 Samuel 18:1 (ESV)
David and Jonathan’s Friendship
18 As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan dloved him as his own soul.
Build relations with like minded ministry leaders. Build alliances that will expand the Kingdom of God. Don't be caught in the trap of building your kingdom. The kingdom of God is the best place to make investments for eternity.
