True leadership is not about being in charge or wielding power. Historically, the heroes of faith operated with a much higher leadership standard. True leadership pivots on serving. It is a regal mantle found in righteous hearts with the priorities flowing from God’s heart.
The princely leadership mantle is recognized and acknowledged even by the world. Abraham was referred to by a Hittite leader as being “a mighty prince among us” (Gen 23:6). The NASU version translates God’s instruction to Samuel to anoint David as a “prince over His people” (1 Sam 9:16).
