Leaders Need to Read like Kings

It has always been interesting to me how much Presidents Read. Many presidents were voracious readers consuming a couple of books a week. Teddy Roosevelt read a book a day sometimes two in multiple languages. Here is quote from Karl Rove’s site about his Reading contest with President Bush during 2005.

“At year’s end, I defeated the president, 110 books to 95. My trophy looks suspiciously like those given out at junior bowling finals. The president lamely insisted he’d lost because he’d been busy as Leader of the Free World.”

Leaders should read. Christian leaders not only need to read, but like Kings they need to read God’s word, daily and meditatively.
