This is the fifth audio message for the Heroes & Villains series.

Abstract


In his day, Jehoshaphat was the most decorated king since Solomon. He did so many things right. He was a model team builder. He wasn’t afraid to delegate, to form alliances, to trust in the Lord, or to identify and utilize others’ talents. He knew where his own strengths ended and where others’ began. He seemed constantly aware of his shortcomings, and successfully surrounded himself with those who could handle what he couldn’t. He also never seemed to allow his pride to get in the way of his objectives. Simply put, he demonstrated sound judgment in nearly all of his dealings: pertaining to himself, others, and God.
