2 Kings 6:28-30 And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son. And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh. Jehoram the son of Ahab was the king of Israel when King of Syria made a siege against Samaria , the royal city of divided Isreal. The siege or barricade created famine of the worst dimension in human history and this resulted to cannibalism among citizens against their own children. There was a case of breach of agreement between two women on how to take turns to feed on their children to survive. The King of Isreal heard about this and following were his reaction: 1. He tored his royal robe in the public. 2. He changed into sackcloath and appeared in the public with them 2King 6:30 3. He descended on highly placed public office spiritual leader in the person of Elisha issuing out instant execution order as purnishment for his failure.2King 6:31 Moral lessons. 1.Passion for humanity is greatly exhibited buy this leaders action. 2.This King was ready to tread on big toes for the sake of common people. 3. This leadership trait brought about speedy result within 24 hours.2King7:1 Today one wonders how leaders still go about in shinning apparels in Nigeria in the mist of National affliction. Some host elaborate wedding ceremony for their children while children of the poor are in sex slavery and captivity. Some hide their children in schools abroad while the children of the poor are left to face the risk of being kidnapped from schools. There is need for people especially from Africa to know that leadership is a calling. If you know you don't possess passion and compassion for humanity, then be rest assured LEADERSHIP is not your calling.
