Positive Direction for the Future – Ezekiel 45

The real way to measure effective leadership is not what benefits the present but what affects a positive direction for the future in our families, businesses, organizations, and society in general.  

In Ezekiel 45, God is giving instructions for how society should be set up. All people will participate; working together to live in peace, ease, and goodness. There will be a balance of authority between leaders and the people. Leaders will be of integrity and a system will be put in place so that the focus of society is to worship the one true God.

Reading today’s passage, made me think back to a personal experience earlier in my career.  I went to technical school to learn about computer programming. After I had secured a job and had been working for a year or so, I was asked about a person who attended the technical school at the same time I did. The person they asked me about was always cheating to get by in class and I just couldn’t give a good recommendation to that applicant. People may think they can cut corners and end up on top but they can’t. At some point in time, the lack of integrity spoils a person’s potential. This video inspires integrity: House of Gold – Gaither Vocal Band.


 
Pray for your walk with God so that it is one of integrity and know that God’s principles never change. A daily devotional like “This Day with God” internalizes His guiding principles and becomes an instrument which pushes one to focus on Him in every activity throughout your day.
