Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:”
It is impossible to be a leader without being a man or woman of truth. It does not matter how many people are stepping in line behind you or tracing your footsteps – even if there are nations.
Hear me well, if your guidance is not coming from a seat of truth within you: You are a deceiver; Just as Lucifer was when he seduced a third of the angels to follow him in his rebellion.
We must be followers of Jesus, who is Truth, as recorded in John 14:6. Great followers of Jesus make great leaders regardless of their position, occupation, status, level, title, education, or what they have in the bank.
Leadership is a matter of character not charisma. The best leadership style is by being a doer of what you tell others. We call it “leading by example.” If I am honest and trustworthy and you follow me; then you will be honest and trustworthy.
Apostle Paul said it like this in 1 Corinthians 11:1, follow me as I follow Christ.
