Scriptures on Godly Leadership 

1 Timothy 4:12

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Titus 1:7-14

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

Proverbs 29:14

The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.

Psalm 78:72

So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

More on Leadership: A servant leader is a true leader.

What are qualities of a good leader, according to the Bible? One who lays down his life for others is not only wise, but godly. Because when you think about the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, you have to undoubtedly think about servant leadership because he didn't come to be served, but to serve.

Is that your motive when it comes to leadership, whether you're a church leader, or you are a leader, a spiritual leader, or a leader in your business?

Do you think about ways to serve? Well, the Old Testament and the New Testament are replete with examples of biblical leadership that I believe will be a source of inspiration, encouragement and teaching do as you endeavor to exemplify Christian leadership to the world in Jesus' mighty Name.
