20131221-110059.jpg

1. Solomon accepts responsibility

2. Solomon recognizes the importance of God’s presence in his daily life

3. Solomon acknowledges God as the source of his power

4. Solomon appreciates the importance of team collaboration and conducts strategic planning with key leaders

5. Solomon leads his team in honoring and consulting the Lord

6. Solomon asks God for wisdom and knowledge to lead properly

7. God grants Solomon wisdom, knowledge and more because his desire was to serve others

THOUGHT: How might Solomon’s leadership style impact our leadership approach today?

SOURCE TEXT:

2 Chronicles 1:1-10

[1] Solomon son of David took firm control of his kingdom, for the Lord his God was with him and made him very powerful.

[2] Solomon called together all the leaders of Israel-the generals and captains of the army, the judges, and all the political and clan leaders.

[3] Then he led the entire assembly to the place of worship in Gibeon, for God’s Tabernacle was located there. (This was the Tabernacle that Moses, the Lord’s servant, had made in the wilderness.)

[4] David had already moved the Ark of God from Kiriath-jearim to the tent he had prepared for it in Jerusalem.

[5] But the bronze altar made by Bezalel son of Uri and grandson of Hur was there at Gibeon in front of the Tabernacle of the Lord. So Solomon and the people gathered in front of it to consult the Lord.

[6] There in front of the Tabernacle, Solomon went up to the bronze altar in the Lord’s presence and sacrificed 1,000 burnt offerings on it.

[7] That night God appeared to Solomon and said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!”

[8] Solomon replied to God, “You showed faithful love to David, my father, and now you have made me king in his place.

[9] O Lord God, please continue to keep your promise to David my father, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth!

[10] Give me the wisdom and knowledge to lead them properly, for who could possibly govern this great people of yours?”
