Proverbs for Servant Leaders

A good name is more desirable than great riches;
to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Rich and poor have this in common:
The Lord is the Maker of them all. Proverbs 22 1-2

Humility and the fear of the Lord,
bring wealth and honor and life.
In the paths of the wicked lie thorns and snares
but he who guards his soul stays far from them.
Train (give your child thirst for righteousness and tame their wild ways)
a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22: 6-7

Think of Belita when you read these words:
He who loves a pure heart
and whose speech is gracious,
will have the king for his friend. Proverbs 22:11
