Are you a leader of leaders or a leader of followers?
Solomon revealed the secret to leading leaders: “One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend” (Proverbs 22:11). A pure heart has no mixed motives. It’s a picture of the impurities being removed in the refinement of precious metals. Consequently, a pure heart is fully surrendered to God, free from selfish motives, and ready to serve another person’s needs.
A pure heart receives God’s grace — His undeserved love, His unmerited favor, which frames our speech. Our words become loving, full of favor, and focused on the advancement of God’s heart in others. Christ, who fully surrendered all to the Father, is the grace of God (2 Corinthians 8:9). It is Christ in us who will lead leaders to Him.
Today, fully surrender your heart and words to the One who makes a king your friend.
