Whenever a king of Judah was a God-seeker and did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, the blessing of God is poured out onto His people. Likewise, whenever a king was evil and sinned against God, the people suffered.
“For the LORD humbled Judah because of King Ahaz of Judah, who threw off restraint in Judah and was unfaithful to the LORD.” (2 Chronicles 28:19 CSB)
What a leader does (which reflects who the leader really is deep inside) has an impact on the entire organisation. As Paul says in Gal.5:9, “A little leaven leaves the whole lump.”
When a leader is unkind, ungracious, without mercy, not wholeheartedly devoted to God, unconcerned about the interest of others, appears nice on the outside but is really self-indulgent on the inside, etc., the entire organisation is affected.
Those of us who serve as leaders in any context need to scrutinise ourselves and examine our hearts regularly. We need to be open to people’s feedback and not be defensive. Not all feedback is right, but all feedback should be considered patiently, prayerfully and humbly.
Then, the Lord who sees the heart will honour us and bless our organisation because we have first honoured Him.
