The Kind of Leader We Should All Have
Today I read 2 Chronicles 30 where King Hezekiah holds the Feast of the Passover. The more I read about him, the more I like Hezekiah. I think I will be quite interested to meet him when I pass over to the other side. He was a man who truly had the best interest of his people in mind. When he decided to hold the feast of the passover it was so that his people could grow closer to Heavenly Father and return to the proper practice of following the Law of Moses and keeping the commandments that God wanted them to. He even prayed that Heavenly Father would forgive those who were not properly cleansed for the feast of the passover and Heavenly Father heard his prayer and pardoned those that did not come properly prepared. It is really awesome to see a king so devoted to his people, just like King Benjamin. This is the way that leaders should be, they should be concerned for the welfare of their people, not for their own comfort. That is the mistake that most people in power today make. They are more concerned with making money and staying in power as opposed to taking care of those that they have stewardship over. If every country was a leader like this, there would be no hunger, no poverty and no crime. It would truly be a paradise. Until tomorrow.
