King – Mswati III
You know in your heart that you did not earn being a King. Do not strut or preen, for destruction will come quickly to those who indulge such vanities. Be grave and purposeful, for I delight to bless through you. It’s your calling, for I too am a King, and I am the King of kings. It is written, “humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and He will exalt you in due season.” A due season is here… are you ready. Premature exaltation will destroy the weak. Strengthen your feeble knees, and lift up hands that hang down, for I am about to do what others crave for. Position and title are like the wind… you cannot grasp them, you cannot keep them, you know not where they are going, nor do you know their strength. Like a sail, you can catch the wind, but a wise helmsman must guide such power. Choose your words wisely, for all heaven is listening, the pens of the recorders are poised to record for posterity. Every word will be established, for I have witnesses who are faithful. Put a watch on your mouth and give a good confession… saving not only yourself, but also your country.

A second fiddle brings harmony. You are not the lead, though the temptation is to lead without timing and counsel. My king is not a titular title in your land, for forces that established him and your country are greater than you and will endure when you are just a footnote. Look well to yourself, your household, and your people you serve. They are all worthy. Put a knife to your throat if you mean to heap and hide riches for self-indulgence. A solo is not for this time, and without your second fiddle, the symphony cannot proceed. It is written, God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Grace is flowing towards you like a river, but the dancing bear of opinion will divert it if you only want entertainment. Your people are waiting for me for they have heard reports of visitations on their neighbors, have brought back good reports, and you will do well to issue letters of invitations to those who speak words of life. Let it be.
