Reading today in Proverbs I was reminded of the characteristics of a good leader (from The Message):

It Pays to Take Life Seriously

 10 A good leader motivates,
   doesn’t mislead, doesn’t exploit.

 11 God cares about honesty in the workplace;
   your business is his business.

 12 Good leaders abhor wrongdoing of all kinds;
   sound leadership has a moral foundation.

 13 Good leaders cultivate honest speech;
   they love advisors who tell them the truth.

 14 An intemperate leader wreaks havoc in lives;
   you’re smart to stay clear of someone like that.

 15 Good-tempered leaders invigorate lives;
   they’re like spring rain and sunshine.

 16 Get wisdom—it’s worth more than money;
   choose insight over income every time.

My Thoughts:  Lord, you’ve given me the privilege of leading a team of people.  Let me not lose sight of these principles and mold me, break me, and move in me to be the leader you desire me to be!  I have so much to learn.
