What does a Leader Look Like…


Posted on February 14th, by Jimmy Scyoc in Evangelism, Wisdom. No Comments

dv1927025But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

By the 16th chapter of 1 Samuel it becomes apparent that Saul is a failure as Israel’s King.  Samuel was ordered to go to Bethlehem to meet Jesse and anoint one of his sons as the new King.  David was not the “obvious” choice.  At that age David did not “look” like a leader much less a King. This leads to a great question…So what is a leader supposed to look like?

God selects His leaders by what’s in their heart, not by how strong, tall, or handsome they are.  God does not care how much we bench press, how far we can run, or how smart we are. God only sees our heart. He wants our heart to be ALIGNED with His heart.

As God’s disciples we are instructed to open our heart to His will and He will lead us in the right direction…the right path. The will of God will never lead us where the grace of God cannot protect us. We must trust in God’s will and follow it if we are to lead others to His love. If we do not follow His heart, we cannot grow His kingdom and be entrusted with His will.

81271039“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:19-20

This verse still rings true today. We ALL are capable of being fishers of men (i.e. leaders), no matter our outward appearance. We shall rise up in the name of the Lord to be leaders in our home, in our business and in our church. We all have a role, no matter how small, to grow God’s kingdom. We all have the freedom, and authority, to bring people to see God’s grace.

We also have the freedom to choose how to live our lives. We all make the choice each day. Today could be the day you make the choice to be a leader. Simply open your heart to God, and he will show you the way.
