A king who sits on the throne of judgment scatters all evil with his eyes. (Proverbs 20:9)
Leadership demands diligent observation of his or her surroundings. It must be able to read faces, gestures and moods. If not, evil can and will attack and destroy that leadership. A leader who does not read the signs of the times will be a short-lived leader. A leader must watch every realm of responsibility, never ignoring frowns, sneers or looks of displeasure. People speak more loudly with gestures than they do with words. Body language speaks volumes. A leader must be able to determine the difference between attention grabbers and sincere looks of need and desire. Instead of asking the obvious, "What's wrong?" A better question would be, "What can I do for you? How can I help?" Do not be afraid to dig. Often times asking once is not enough. If you are a leader or desire leadership, you must become a watcher. You must sit on the throne of judgment and scatter all evil with your eyes.
