Kings and priests – what are you?

Priests generally hear from God before others do. Kings provide the funds for the priests.

“Priests give vision; Kings give provision.”

Kings without relationship to their priests become weird. Inside each of us is an inborn need of conquest, a vision. Without the vision, the conquest can turn us into workaholics, alcoholic, sexaholics, etc. In order to be a great king, you must have stewardship over ownership.

“Whatever is yours was His first, and will be again.”

How to be a good king…

  1. Have a mission (Who are you? What do you believe? Where do you want to go? What do you stand for?) His mission statement is “don’t screw up.”
  2. Think bigger (Big thinkers check their assumptions.)
  3. Have high standards
  4. Be able to change
  5. Be sensitive
  6. Be willing to risk
  7. Be able to make decisions
  8. Use power wisely
  9. communicate well
  10. Be a team builder
  11. Have courage
  12. Be committed
