I have written posts on leadership and yes the Bible talks about leadership and leaders. The Bible talks about good leaders like David, Josiah, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah, Jesus to name a few. The good leaders did right in the eyes of the lord. They always consulted God about going into battle and on other things. The bad leaders-well not so much. Ahab being one of them.
A fellow blogger, Ol’ Broad, did some leadership verses from Proverbs I would like to share the post with you.
