Honesty is critical to leadership, but not all leaders are honest. At times, they tend to tell “half-truths.”
Biblically, we know the necessity of honesty as a Christian virtue. Therefore, the application of honesty in biblical leadership is a natural reflection of what is expected by God and others.
Honesty is characterized in the words of David, describing the the power of biblical leadership in the one who “walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart” (Ps. 15:2).
The emphasis of David provides a platform for leaders, describing both who they are and what they do.
