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.
