The Burdens of Leadership

Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 3:22-6:23

A Christian leader, no matter whether in the church or in a secular setting, will hold Jesus Christ as his example.  For the believer, a position of leadership is not so much a position of power and honor as an opportunity for service and humility. [See Mark 10:35-45].

David’s experience shows that being king brings a flood of burdens and trials along with opportunities to do good and to glorify God on a larger scale.  How do you look at the leadership roles you fill?

[For more reflections on this passage see the corresponding reading in my book Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 days].
