In these few versus the prophet Micah is crying out against Samaria and Jerusalem for the impending punishment that the people were to endure. Because of his assignment from the Lord he delivers to them what God is about to do through His judgments. Then in versus 8-10 Micah shows the heart of a true leader when he begins to Mourn for the people he loves.
The more a leader matures, the more value and commitment they have on people. At the end of the day when all is said and done, leadership in not about strategy, marketing, organization, efficiency, or high quality products, it’s about people. Micah shows us his love for people by demonstrating when they hurt he hurt…even though they were wrong. The value he placed on people teaches us the following…
a. People are the churches most appreciable asset.
b. People skills are a leader’s most important asset.
c. If you are good with people, you can lead in a variety of contexts.
d. You can have people skills and not be a good leader, but you cannot be a good leader without people skills.
Great leaders not only have a connection with people but they genuinely care about and value people.
