WICKED WOMEN

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Mark 6:17-29

And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked…
Jeremiah 15:21
 
The leadership of a woman is characterized by wickedness. You must study leadership, understand leadership, and practise appropriate principles of leadership otherwise you may lead people with the style and mind of a woman.

A woman whose mind is uncontrolled and unrefined by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God has her thoughts characterized by wickedness. Therefore a leader who is like a woman tends to be wicked. Hitler and Stalin are examples of leaders who went this route.

The leadership of a woman is also characterized by fears and insecurity. Read the story of Sarah and Hagar in the Bible: “… And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba” (Genesis 21:914). A woman whose mind is uncontrolled and unrefined by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God has her thoughts characterized by insecurity. Her thoughts were dominated by the desire to remove threatening people rather than to make use of their strengths for the common good. Therefore a leader who is like a woman tends to demonstrate his insecurity by removing people he perceives as threats to him.

Fear is such a terrible thing. It is put on the same platform as witchcraft, sorcery, idolatry and murder because it has similar fruits. Fear is often called insecurity. Be careful your insecurities do not colour everything you do.
