10 Bible verses on Godly Leadership
Psalm 78:72 says, “With upright heart, he shepherded them and guided them with his skillful hand.”
There are two kinds of leaders, the Worldly and the Godly.
As the name implies, Worldly leaders draw their skills from the earth, other leaders, while the latter depend on God, His son and the Bible.
Thus, learn how to be a Godly leader from the following 10 verses.

10. Mark 10:42-45; “And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you.
