Proverbs 20v2 “The wrath of a king is like a roaring lion…”
Roaring is how lions set public boundaries over their territory & preferences.
The role of the king is to set & enforce public boundaries.
“…Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life”
Basically, if you come at the king, you best not miss.
Servants wont risk their life to defend anything.
Servant energy appeases it’s violators.
But a king will retaliate, & meet force with escalated force.
Reciprocity is king energy.
From Donald’s book “The Art of the Deal,” which is a fascinating study on king energy:
“If you let someone get away with stealing your chickens, don’t be surprised when they rape your daughters.”
What you allow will continue, in increasing measure.
Very few men are King Archetypes.
Yes, do look for a good King to protect you.
Serve & honor him, & he will look after you. Noblesse Oblige.
But we can’t outsource kingship of our own life, home, & property.
Proverbs 25v28 “A man who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls.”
We must embrace king energy when it comes to personal boundaries.
Reciprocity & boundary-keeping are terrifying to servant energy men.
We cannot go on treating violators with courtesy.
They must be met with reciprocity.
Righteous anger is ok, it is the ignition of your king energy.
I am constantly unlearning this servant energy, from years of allowing violaters access with the excuse of “kindness,” “serving others,” & “turn the other cheek.”
It is ok to deny violators access to your life & property.
It is ok to make reciprocal demands upon others.
