Proverbs 19v10 unpacking some King energy on us:
“Luxury is not fitting for a fool…”
Starting the proverb out on this foundation is very important.
It sets up a metaphorical comparison for the next line.
Luxury is a reward, a fruit of Wisdom.
Fools can enjoy Luxury, but they cannot create & sustain Luxury.
Homeless men aren’t homeless because they don’t have a house.
They are homeless because they can’t create & sustain a home.
Who the Fool is, is incompatible with Luxury.
Now that we see the metaphor we can apply it to the next part:
“Much less for a servant to rule over princes.”
A servant can enjoy ruling over princes, but he cannot create or sustain a principality.
A lot of our church & political leaders are servants to debt, sin, & fear.
Who the servant is, is incompatible with rulership.
The psyop of “servant leadership” has framed Kingly Rulership as bad, immoral, & scary.
We have chased our kings out of the churches & town halls, & replaced them with impotent servants.
Business is the last institution where kings can extend dominion without being subordinate to a board of karens.
We are, most of us, in desperate search of a good king to serve.
We need our kings to return to church & political leadership & start ruling over servants if we ever want to create & sustain culturally dominant institutions.
