The honor in leadership is not to seek position but for position to seek for you.
Real leaders don’t seek for position to function nor title to carry out their tasks – it is what they do that creates the position and defines their title.
David was after function and not recognition and ended getting more than recognition to a point of being requested to become the people’s ruler. 2 Samuel 5:1-5.
Position, titles, office, and accolades beg for you and dance around you only at your return from carrying out your assignment.
1 Samuel 18:5,6,7.
