The Davidic royal throne handover notes of excellent leadership – Part 2
The Sun-model-leadership And The Laws Of Governance Congenialities
Text: 2 Samuel 23:1-4
 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said,
 The Spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.
 The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.
 And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
1 Samuel 2:35
 And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.
Sun was created by God to rule or govern the DAY. To become a governing-sun, then, is to have been sponsored, ordained and commissioned by God. It must be social contract covenant keeping leading sun, which is an embodiment of credible transparency, accountability, reliable transmitter of resources and excellent distributor to all and sundry.
Some of the qualities for such leadership are as follows, as gleaned from these scriptures: Such leader must possess the virtue and attribute of:
Responsiveness: being a care-provider, awake and alive to responsibilities of the citizens’ welfare.
1 Samuel 13:14
 But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.
 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
 Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
