Today in our Inspired Leadership Minute I want us to look at Proverbs 16:7: “When a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
Like many proverbs, this one is generally true but there are exceptions. When you fulfill the command to love your enemies you will be able to make peace with many, but there will be those that reject you and the peace of the Lord.
Certainly, when you behave in ways that please the Lord, He will care for you in this world or the next, or both.
What does that mean for us as leaders today?
Jesus said in John 15:18 the world hated Him and they will also hate us as believers because they love the world more than the Lord.
Christian leaders, remember that it is our job to please the Lord. It is the Lord’s job to convict the unbeliever. We must please the Lord by demonstrating the love of God to our enemies. Whatever happens in our life and the life of the unbeliever, be at peace, knowing that God is in control!
That’s it for this week’s Inspired Leadership Minute. My prayer is that together we will be the powerful, inspired leaders God intends us to be!
