THE QUALITIES OF A GREAT LEADER By Henry Jaegers
So Darius the Mede received the kingdom at about the age of sixty- two. It seemed good to Darius to appoint 120 satraps over the kingdom that they should be in charge of the whole kingdom. (Daniel 5:31 and 6:1)

Darius was a great leader. While Belshazzar was partying inside the city, Darius was planning on how to make it his outside the city and his plan succeeded. As we study this chapter we will come to appreciate some very helpful principles of good leadership. He was not a dictator but one with experience and training. Consider these qualities
He was observant: He recognized the potential in others and chose his leaders without prejudice. He recognized their potential to do the work that they were chosen for.
He made wise choices. He did not choose those who were his friends. He looked for those with excellent leadership skills and the willingness and ability to work in his program.
He was organized. He had organizational skills and knew how to arrange different groups in order to reach a unified goal.
He Cared. He listened to others and heard their concerns. Through this he was able to create harmony among people with diverse opinions and backgrounds.
He ruled. He knew when to make laws and how to enforce them. When they were disobeyed he followed up with proper action.
He inspired hope and trusted those that he placed in authority to do their job with minimal supervision.

The message to focus on is that good government is a gift from God. Unfortunately it takes bad government to help us to appreciate and recognize the source of good government. Darius was a good king and the land experienced peace under his reign.
