A Kingdom Leader has an attitude that is gentle and humble. He is open and teachable. She is poised and a clear thinker. They are polite and gracious to those in authority. They are appreciated by others because they are pleasant to be around.
Is your heart fixed only on God? Can you correct others without arrogance? Do you defend your Christian faith with gentleness? Are you ready to be taught by the Word of God each day? Or is your heart flooded with bitterness and contentiousness? Daniel amazes me with his gentleness and humility in serving four pagan kings in Babylon.
Daniel 1:4 says, young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians. (1)
We pray that animosity does not stain your heart while you lead others.
