The strongest men and women strive for PEACE. Now more than ever, it is critical that we have LEADERS of every race who are led by God.
Leaders who are led by and lead by LOVE and GODLY WISDOM.
How can you tell who to trust?
Only trust leaders that seek PEACE, COMMON GROUND and most of all LOVE. Those who are led by SPIRIT and not FLESH. Trust those who aren’t easily provoked and don’t provoke others to wrath. Those who can manage their emotions, and don’t manipulate the emotions and fears of others. Those who strive to build on what we have in common, rather than use our differences to tear us apart.
We need leaders who look for solutions rather than finding fault. Leaders who call for accountability and responsibility, rather than recklessly placing blame.
In Jeremiah 3:15, God promises…15 “And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
God Himself in said in Isaiah 1:18, “Come let us reason together”…let’s settle the matter.
GODLY leaders promote UNDERSTANDING and not MISUNDERSTANDING. Godly leaders realize the key to conflict resolution is finding common ground. Be careful who you listen to, be careful who you follow…make sure they are following God and LEADING IN LOVE.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
