Mark 12:30-31 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all they mind, and with all they strength: this is the first commandment.  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  There is none other commandment greater than these.”

I have witnessed two types of leaders, those who focus upward to impress their boss and those who focus downward to serve their organization.  The former tend to be self-serving careerists and the later tend to be humble servant leaders.

In fact, the true focus of a humble servant leader should indeed be upward.  This upward focus should not be directed towards a boss, but to the Lord.  Only then can leaders keep their priorities in order and their perspectives in check.  Only then can leaders be reminded that leadership is a responsibility not a right.  Only then can leaders see their position as one of selfless service instead of self-promotion.  Only then can they truly love God and love others.  Indeed, our nation needs leaders that follow God’s priorities as listed in Mark 12.  We need them in our homes; we need them in our churches; we need them in our communities; we need them in our schools; we need them in our workplaces; we need them in our government.  Only with such leaders can America return to its Christian roots.  PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD DEMAND LEADERS IN ALL ASPECTS OF OUR SOCIETY WHO FOLLOW GOD’S PRIORITIES.
