Before you appoint him a king (Leader); he must have these qualities



Before you can be qualified to be appointed as a king or a leader, you  must be humble, not displaying too much wealth and must not marry many wives.That is the first quality people must see in you before even considering you as a leader or a king!

Read the rest below as gotten from the Holy Bible…

1- “The king must not build up a large stable of horses for himself (The king must not have a large entourage, cars, escorts for himself” Deuteronomy 17:16


2- “The king must not take many wives for himself because they will turn his heart away from the LORD.” Deuteronomy 17:17A (So now it is not having many wives that is the issue, the major reason why God does not permit many wives for a leader, a king, is because, no matter how strong you are as a person or as a man, many women will lead you astray because you will be getting advises from all of them based on their personal interests and that of their children, in-line with such advise(s), and you may at one time or the other take a wrong decision based on one or more of them advising you wrongly, which could lead to your death, dethronement from kingship from even your family-line for generations. But a single wife will protect your interest and that of your children because you both own them and in turn you both own your properties alone together. So even if anything should go wrong with you your family interest will be protected. Also, marrying many wives is a display of affluence, which has already been discouraged in the first instance. 

3- The king …”Must not accumulate large amounts of wealth in silver (Houses, cars etc), and gold (Huge account balances) for himself” Deuteronomy 17:17. While it is not bad to accumulate wealth, what is bad is accumulating of wealth for only "personal", inability to give to people from your wealth, inability to carry out community services, that s what the Bible is talking about here. Anyone that qualifies as a king must not be selfish. 

If the king (leader) is appointed and has these qualities, he should ensure to live daily by this principles and guidelines and never change them.

This will prevent him from becoming proud and acting as if he is above his fellow citizens. Deuteronomy 17:20.

When you have too much affluence and wealth showing around you, your lifestyle, you will become too proud especially as a leader, a king. As a leader or a king, you already have power, authority, too much display of wealth, money, wives, large entourage and cars, will make you look larger than life and you will soon become proud. (Remember, pride goes before a fall). This is why God is discouraging you from displaying too much affluence, wealth, riches.

But if as a leader, or a king you are humble, not marrying many wives, not displaying large entourage and affluence, then you and your generations will be leaders in the world, you and your family to come will be recognized, even if they are not kings, they will be recognized.



Read the Deuteronomy 17: 14-20

  1. This is in contrast to what is obtainable in the world today. Where leaders cruise in fleet of luxury cars with large entourage, display of wealth and affluence, everywhere, even still what is meant for the less privileged.

      There is nothing wrong in the rich and being a leader at thesame time, the only problem is the way you handle your riches
