Amaziah did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, but not wholeheartedly (2 Chronicles 25:2).
Notice the contradictions in Amaziah’s life and leadership:
Sadly, the “not wholeheartedly” leader usually ends up just like other leaders that God calls “evil” (vv. 22-24, 27).
Bottom line: there is no such thing as a halfway leader in God’s eyes. There is only following God or rebelling against God—all leaders must choose one or the other.
A mark of a godly leader is one who consistently chooses to follow God wholeheartedly.
