*🌽SEEDS OF DESTINY🍇*

A DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE 

DATE: TUESDAY 22ND DECEMBER, 2020

*TOPIC: STEWARDSHIP ACCOUNTABILITY BEFORE GOD*

SCRIPTURE: Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 1 Corinthians 4:1.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One reason why some leaders misbehave while in office is that they are not conscious of their accountability before God. 

Every single person owes a duty of accountability before God on the last day. And leaders, including public leaders, also owe a duty of accountability before God, and must give an account of their stewardship on the last day. So, as a leader, you will give an account of your stewardship before God (Romans 14:12). 

Now, one reason why some leaders misbehave while in office is that they are not conscious of their accountability before God. It is the lack of accountability consciousness that makes some leaders to embezzle public funds and empty the treasury.

God will require of everyone, including every leader alike, the duty of accountability on the last day. For instance, as a local government chairman or a leader in the local government council, you will give an account of your leadership to God. When you maltreat people under you; engage in kidnapping, ritual killing and shedding of innocent blood to keep your position, you will give an account before the God who cannot be bribed.

As a governor or a leader in a state, you will give an account of your governance before God. You will give an account of how you spent the money belonging to your state government.

Are you a president of a nation or a holder of a key public office? You will give an account of how you utilized and managed the resources committed into your hands.  You will give an account of how you took care of or maltreated the people that God put under your care. When you embezzle government’s fund and misrule the people, you will give an account. When you loot the treasury and allow people to wallow in poverty, hunger and suffering while you enrich yourself at the expense of their welfare, you will give an account to God who is the Consuming Fire, on the last day. 

Beloved, it is good to be aware of this so you can lead and serve well as a public officer.

Remember this: One reason why some leaders misbehave while in office is that they are not conscious of their accountability before God. 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. As a leader, be always concerned about the welfare of the people under you.

2. Don’t embezzle public resources and allow people to suffer because you are a leader or a person in a position of trust.

3. Devise strategies to enhance people’s welfare as a leader or a person in a position of trust. 

PRAYER: O Lord, thank You for the privilege of leadership. I ask for forgiveness in any way I have mismanaged the opportunity. I ask for grace to lead people right and not take advantage of them for my personal gain, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: INEVITABLE APPOINTMENT AND INESCAPABLE JUDGEMENT.

QUOTE: As believers we are expected to come under the headship, leadership and direction of Jesus Christ as our Shepherd, Lord and Saviour. Culled from “14 SECRETS PLUS ONE TOWARDS A SWEET MARRIAGE” by Dr. Becky Enenche.

DAILY READING: 1 John 1-3

AMAZING FACT: If an identical twin lacks a certain tooth, the other twin will not have that tooth either.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace to be faithful in your assignment in Jesus’ Name.
