Contrasts: Wicked Woe vs Knowing God

The Nature of the Leadership determines the direction of the kingdom.
Contrasts in Leadership:: Building your kingdom without wages vs Knowing God by judging the cause of the poor and needy
Jeremiah 22
13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour’s service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;
14 That saith, I will build me a wide house and large chambers, and cutteth him out windows; and it is cieled with cedar, and painted with vermilion.
15 Shalt thou reign, because thou closest thyself in cedar? did not thy father eat and drink, and do judgment and justice, and then it was well with him?
16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: WAS NOT THIS TO KNOW ME? saith THE LORD.
17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
Wicked Leadership:
– builds house (kingdom, nation, authority) with unpaid labor (slavery)
– confident in self
– covetous
– does oppression and violence
– profits off innocent blood
– can expect destruction
Leadership that Knows God
– judges and pleads the cause of the poor and needy
– It is well with them
