I have a word of warning for leaders about the populist movement in Australia and New Zealand. I feel that the Lord wants to say to them that He did not put them there is to be popular, He put them there to be a leader. Even though their perceived leadership season may be very short lived, they must see to it that they stick to the clearly defined mandate that brought their ascend to the leadership podium. They must not worry about the persecution and the popular opinion which will remove them from that throne or seating. They are there to do what they have to do. There will be some longer “throne” seasons than others, but it seems that most of these seasons will be very short lived. Get done what must be done; it won’t be easy; it is not something that will be popular. It is something that needs to be done for the good of the entire community and even the entire nation that they are serving.
