"At the end of the game the king and the pawn go back in the same box." - Italian Proverb
 
No matter how important we believe ourselves to be, how brightly we may shine in the limelight, or how hard we may toil in dim anonymity, death is the great equalizer.
 
In the end only this will matter to God -- Did we do what He positioned us to do for His glory? And, did we genuinely and selflessly serve His people? 
 
That’s what Nehemiah did. It’s why in the end --- after he had overseen the rebuilding of the wall; and, had taken care of the needs of the people even at the expense of his own comfort and ease, he prays to God in Nehemiah 13:31 his last recorded words, “Remember me, O my God, for good.” That’s legacy in leadership.
 
You and I should be living and serving not for the next office, title or position, but for our legacy. 
 
When it's all said and done, how will you and I be remembered? On your first day in office, you should be thinking about your last. And serve with the end in mind.

When the Glory Fades

In any office we hold, whether school board trustee, city councilmember, mayor, county commissioner, County Judge, state rep, Senator, Congressperson, or even President of the United States, history will record our name and these two facts, "preceded by and succeeded by." 

No matter the office, no matter how long we serve or how well we serve, the glory one day will fade. And only when our plans and purpose align with God’s plans and purpose will we have been counted a success. Five things every public servant leader should know before the glory fades.

The Enemy's Plan of Attack - How Satan Takes Out the Best of Leaders

It doesn't matter how clever we are, our title, position, who we are, how long we've been walking with God or how well we think we are in control of our life.
 
None of us is a match for the one Jesus says is a thief who comes but to steal, kill and destroy. Most of us have heard this simple scripture all our life, but like me never fully grasped what Jesus is telling us.
 
It is a simple but powerful message and warning to us all. I hope this podcast helps you better understand this diabolical fallen angel - the god of this world and his tried and true methods of taking out the best of leaders.

God, Do It Again!

How many times have you had to cry out to God, -- "Lord, help me just one more time... God, do it again!" I have.

When most people hear or think of Samson, it’s always in the vein of Samson and Delilah and many know the story, of the deceptive Delilah and how she tricked Samson and had has hair cut – many believe, the source of his incredible strength.

His hair wasn’t the source of his strength, but symbolic of supernatural strength that could come only from God.

While Delilah certainly played a strategic role in Samson’s life aborting or so widely thought, aborting Samson’s leadership role as Judge over Israel, her role was cast by God to bring about his divine will.

The devil is even God’s devil and every one of us are born and purposed by God to play a part in His kingdom’s unfolding story on earth.

Samson was the most feared leader of his generation and physical strength-wise, unmatched in any generation to this day.

The life and leadership of Samson is a beautiful word picture not of a deceptive lover, but of an awesome and covenant-keeping God; making and keeping an incredible covenant with what would be an incredibly brash and compulsive leader who, did not keep His part of the covenant, yet God kept his --  even until the end of Samson’s life.

Let’s learn from the leadership and life of this unique leader from the book of Judges. You will be surprised.
