Leadership is broken because leaders are unbroken
What a leader loves determines how a leader leads. Consider Solomon, for example.
Solomon loved the Lord and walked according to the statutes of his father, David . . . As long as Solomon loved the Lord and walked according to David’s ways, he was humble and trusted God for an understanding heart because he knew he was not adequate to lead God’s people. Solomon demonstrated his love for the Lord by living in radical dependence on Him. Because of this request God gave Solomon a discerning heart and with it, God gave him more than he asked for: riches and honor and the possibility of a long life (I Kings 3:3-15). It was out of his love for the Lord that Solomon built and dedicated the temple (I Kings 5-6) that had been the passion of his father’s devoted heart (I Kings 11:4).
But Solomon had a different love, a love that changed his life and leadership. Now King Solomon loved many foreign women . . . (I Kings 11:1)
