After all the celebrations on the day of swearing – in, one thing is certain, responsibility has been actually and indirectly transferred to you. And the earlier you realise that people’s life and destinies are in your hand, the better for you.
Permit me to say this; if you are a true leader, your heart is not likely to be at rest because people’s lives are in your care.
Here is what the bible says about a king- 1 king 20 vs 39.
Your sole responsibility is to-
• Diligently guard the lives of your followers (you are accountable to God for their lives, harness their potentials and talents, let them not get missing in the things pertaining to good living).
Of course you know that when you fail to carry out your responsibility, you should be prepared to bear the consequencies.
As a leader, if you fail to guard the lives of your followers, two things are involved:
• You either pay with your life or;
• You pay a talent of silver (money)
NOTE that when we say you are going to pay a talent of silver (money), we are not talking about being fined, we mean you are going to go down financially and economically.
Check a nation that is very poor, you will discover that either the leader has not been able to manage the resources in the land or he has gone about being a busy body and not realising that there are untapped potentials in his people.
Pals, I like you to know one thing, if the present Government is failing in it’s duties and we the up coming generation are ignorant of why they are failing, we will continue to build a country whose citizens do not have the slightest idea of who a leader is supposed to be. And that means doom for us.
Make a choice today and stick to your decisions, I bet you- this Nation will be a better place to live in.
