A Kingdom Leader stands out from others. When Darius, the King of Media-Persia, met Daniel (Daniel 6) he noted that he had an excellent spirit. That first impression is so important!
Would others say that you present yourself in a distinguishing way? Is your character exceptional in their eyes? Why should someone take note of you? Do you pay attention to the small details of cleanliness and daily hygiene? When was the last time you trimmed your finger and toe nails?
Others notice how we present ourselves and how we work. A personal attitude is reflected in personal care of your body, mind and soul. Even non Christians can see the difference!
Daniel 6:3 (ESV)
3 Then this Daniel became tdistinguished above all sthe other high officials and rsatraps, because uan excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned vto set him over the whole kingdom.
Consider the man or woman you see in the mirror. Take care of that image you see. Reflect that image in how you work, think and live in your home.
