Day 69: The Centurion Principle

Proverbs 10:8

A wise heart takes orders;
an empty head will come unglued.


God speaks through leadership – not around it.

One of the greatest principles that can be discovered is the protocol of authority. It is a hallmark of FivestarMan, and the foundation for understanding proper leadership called the Centurion Principle.

In Matthew 8:5, a Centurion approaches Jesus with a request, “My servant lies at home, suffering terribly.” Jesus offers to go to the home and heal the servant. The Centurion’s reply causes Jesus to marvel at his demonstration of faith; he says, “I have not found anyone in Israel that understands faith like this man.”

The Centurion’s secret, “For I also am a man subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my slave, do this, and he does it.”

The Centurion knew how to receive orders and pass those orders to others – that is the protocol of authority. The wise take orders.
