In this series, I will gradually make my way through books of the Bible, showing how each bit applies to our lives today.
A while back, I published a post asking ‘What does a good leader look like?’ Its conclusion was simple: a good leader uses their power to provide justice for the oppressed, not just line their own pockets.
Unfortunately, there aren’t that many leaders out there who match up to this standard.
Imagine that someone came up to you and gave you a kingdom, just a big ol’ bit of land, for you to rule as you wish. It’s completely empty, so your first job is to choose who to stick in it. You can invite anybody you like.
I don’t feel good enough, even though I have really, honestly, tried. This might be your experience, too. You may go about recycling with a religious fervour, donate generously to a multitude of different charities, do the shopping for Dorothy down the road, and make sure you take an active interest in the health of the local community.
