In a multitude of people is the glory of a king, but without people a prince is ruined (Proverbs 14:28, ESV). It has been said that the common denominator of world empires is the single word power. In other words, some are so interested in power that the thought of exerting leadership that is beneficial to the people is…well…not thought of. When the people are behind leadership, willing to follow the example given, then there is much that can and will be accomplished. On the other hand, when that same leadership is in it only for self, then the power exerted is empty on those who are subject. In the political realm we can see how obvious this is, how much more so the church!
