LastCall: Are your heart and attitude right so you are blessable by God? (107-3) -Barry Werner

Are your heart and attitude right so you are blessable by God? (107-3)

There are some leadership traits that seem to lead to God’s special favor. Read 1 Chronicles 4:9-10.

God singled out one man, Jabez, from a genealogical list of more than 600 others for special recognition in 1 Chronicles. Why? What can we learn about Jabez from this brief mention in the Bible?

Verse 9 says, “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers.” According to the dictionary definition, Jabez was a man of personal integrity, guided by or with a reputation for having strong moral and ethical principles. Interesting that a leader’s character stays at or near the top of God’s list for a leader to be blessable!

Jabez also understood his position in relationship to God and those he led. In 1 Chronicles 4:10 (NKJ) Jabez says “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” Jabez acknowledged that God was the provider and he needed God’s blessing and ongoing presence. He also showed his understanding that leaders are created to serve not be served.

How do your priorities stack up against the example of Jabez? When God hears your prayers, is your heart and attitude “right” so you are blessable?

Proverbs 15:11 in the Living Bible says, “The depths of hell are open to God’s knowledge. How much more the hearts of mankind!”
