Principles indicate a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning. Think about it as a rule that governs our personal behavior.
As leaders, we need to ask the following.
1) Why have principles to govern behavior?
2) What governs our personal behavior?
3) Are they based on humanistic or biblical foundations?
4) Will others see consistency between our principles and behavior?
When leaders consider the answers to these questions regarding principles and behavior, the steps to harmonize them will develop leadership worth following.
