How to be a Kind Leader

Lead by example, they said.

But, by whose example?

Where did you get your leadership example from?

From the top schools and minds in the world?

From the top businessmen in the world?

Where did they get their own leadership style, as well?

Have those leadership styles created a better world?

Has it created a just world?

Is God present in the world?

Ah, now you see what I’m driving at.

Only God can lead.

Only the CREATOR has a right to lead.

By ourselves, we are nothing.

Do you think our MBAs, Ph.Ds, titles, and wealth matter much to God?

Do you think Jesus cares about it at all?

If you read the Bible, you’d know God hates idols with a passion.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Exodus 20:3-5 (King James Version)

You cannot serve two masters, Jesus said.

 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Matthew 6:24 (King James Version)

Did Christ walk, clothed in luxury?

Did He pull strings just so He can escape crucifixion?

And think about this: Christ could have been plucked out by the REAL power in all of Creation -- His FATHER – but that would have defeated the whole purpose of the Cross.

To save humanity, and to show the real might and power of God, through the Resurrection.

3 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

Galatians 3:1-7 (King James Version)

How can any worldly promise or enticement ever compare to the promise of Eternal Life?

I smile at everyone who accumulates titles and possessions on earth.

As if we could take all that with us, when Jesus comes back for His people.

As if we could take that where we’re all going at the end of our lives.

If anything, these worldly obsessions and accumulation, will hinder us at the door.

What do you have in your heart?

That’s all God cares to know.

How have you treated your family, your workers, your communities?

That matters much.

It is a reflection of who you are.

Pretend you have nothing in this world.

No money, no title, no job, no house, no car, no offshore account, no plane, no yacht, no servants, no important friends – how would you be?

How would you fare in this world?

But isn’t that what CHRIST went through?

He had none of those, except for a few, dear friends who fed Him, walked behind Him, and remained faithful to the end.

The rest of the time, Jesus would disappear into a crowd, for people wanted to stone Him, or adore Him.

He just kept saying it wasn’t “time”.

He knew when to lead.

He knew when to disappear.

The most important thing was He knew His MISSION.

He led us all back to God, to rightfully worship and love the FATHER.

 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Luke 4:8 (King James Version)

That’s all He cared about as He ministered to the sick, dying, and possessed each day, wherever He went.

He didn’t care about His comfort.

He cared that people ate, for they’ve come from afar.

If He could multiply the loaves and fishes just like that, can you imagine how easy it would be for Jesus to feed the world, in a twinkling of an eye?

How can we doubt His power so?

How can we just focus on the material stuff of life, when our souls are on the line?

I’d like to be a leader with God in my heart, and only God, just as Jesus taught.

And so, I write these blogs and articles, because I do.

I lead myself first.

Whether you care to listen, or not, the deed had been done.

Prompted by Spirit, I wrote.

I shared my works.

If it touches the hearts and spirits of people, that’s all very well.

But that’s not my concern.

I merely do the work I’m meant to do – as scribe.

God takes care of the rest.

He will lead people to my writing.

It should not concern me that I become a best-selling author, a well-known speaker, or a top blogger.

That is not in God’s plan for me, as He’s showed often enough.

He knows I love serving Him, as I serve you.

I cannot give you falsehoods.

All have to be backed by SCRIPTURE.

As scribe, it is unforgivable on my part, that I knowingly mislead you, or “edit” God’s instructions.

Won’t happen.

Not during my “watch”.

God and I have worked all my life that I be this way – solely devoted to Him.

I am in the midst of a demonic world, and only by the GRACE and GUIDANCE of God can I survive and thrive.

He will not allow a hair on my head to be harmed, for if it were so, I’d have been dead a long time ago.

Sometimes, we are all a danger to each other.

So, I stand alone, with God in my heart.

That’s how I lead.

I lead myself first.

Pretty much how you can test how much you love your work.

Would you do it if there was no customer, listener, buyer, follower, or subscriber?

Would you still create the products and services you’re creating now?

If you can’t give a genuine “YES” to that, then go back on the drawing board.

Create, with God in your heart.

Give people something of God.

Through your hands, your heart, your mind, God can live on this world.

Give people real value.

Let's not tie them to unnecessary and expensive  products and services, to high interest rates, to monthly subscriptions, to padded costs, just so our vice-presidents can continue to live the high life, as the rest of the population scrounge to make ends meet.

In my heart, those high interest rates, expensive and useless products and services, and costly monthly subscriptions – whether in mortgage payments, car payments, taxes, tuition fees (which increase every year), utility payments, credit card payments, insurance payments, loan payments – are all demonic.

They are all based on fear, and greed.

Yes, I will state that again.

It is demonic, and these people are under the leadership of their father, Satan.

They knowingly bleed the people dry.

These marginalized people have nothing left for themselves, and their families.

They have to borrow money, to “consolidate” those loans, so they could pay everything the world asks of them, letting them sink ever deeper into debt.

Actually, the world's financial services are designed so all may have debt, with no hope of transcending that.

Worse still, that debt is passed on to the next generations, and the noose is ever-tightening upon our necks. 

Of course, organizations, institutions, governments, clubs, and corporations won’t survive without the people dutifully paying each month.

The covid crisis saw to that.

Now, everyone feels how it is not to have income.

Everyone’s made to be on the same boat.

Now, the entities I just mentioned can’t rake in their usual bucks, as everyone’s suffering financially.

Wasn’t that the whole idea why God allowed this health crisis to blow up on its own?

So, the hearts of people may be revealed?

So, the addictions and obsessions, will be put to light?

So, the demonic minions will be finally exposed?

You really can’t hide all that from God.

Perhaps, He wanted us to see it for ourselves, because at any given time, being the Creator, He could heal the world -- just like that!

I have always had a passion for authentic leadership.

Not finding it anywhere, I chose to become an entrepreneur, and lead myself.

Two decades ago, I also declared to myself that true leaders are those who “cause others to know”.

Well, today, I am making it precise, as God lives in my heart now.

I’d like to tell you that true leaders LOVE God, above all.

If you can be such a leader, loving God with all your heart, soul, mind, and being, you will be a kind leader.

Forget about being a great leader.

Only GOD is GREAT.

Forget about being a good leader.

My form of leadership is to tell you that, with conviction in my heart!

All because I’ve read Jesus’ words, and God’s instructions.

I am now well-equipped to lead myself.

I seek no followers.

I only care that GOD’s TRUTH be known.

Enough of delusion.

All our souls are at stake.

See beyond your gold.

Real GOLD is in GOD.
