Leadership Life


What makes a good leader and why do we care?

Integrity… basically means doing the right thing, treating people with honesty, sincerity and ethically.

PRO 11:3 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.
1KI 3:5-13

Certainly telling the truth to our employees, soldiers, students, spouse and children is important to deserve their respect, loyalty and cooperation

PRO 12:19 Truthful lips will be established forever, But a lying tongue is only for a moment.

PRO 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy.

PRO 12:21 No harm befalls the righteous, But the wicked are filled with trouble

Goal oriented. A leader must have worthy goals and a plan to reach them.

PRO 21:5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty. Php 3:14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.


Confidence. A leader must be confident that his goals are attainable.

PRO 3:26 For the LORD will be your confidence And will keep your foot from being caught.
2CO 3:4 Such confidence we have through Christ toward God.

ROM 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

ROM 8:31 b If God is for us Who is against us?

Php 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.



Mindful of the needs and desires of those he leads.

LUK 6:31 "Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.

Php 2:3-4 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves, do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Jesus exhibits this servants heart in

JOH 13:3-15

PRO 28:16

Own his own failures and not let them deter him from his mission.
