When Leaders Fail…

Regardless of our political position, developments within the administrative system of our country seem to raise questions about leadership.

It is fascinating to see quotes and principles regarding leadership and what happens when leaders fail to be trustworthy.

On more than one occasion, news reporters express the idea of accountability. Specifically, one analyst expressed that what leaders do when mistakes are made is “confess the mistake, take responsibility, and let the chips fall where they may.”

Leaders will experience failure. They make mistakes. How leaders strategically maneuver during these times determines the level of trust to be gained or lost by those who follow.

Leaders and Debating…

People seem to love debating. They love to debate about politics, religion, personal opinions, various convictions, and current events.

We should not be surprised; it seems to have been around for centuries of time. Socrates said, “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”

When pride grows, we no longer debate, but seek ways to slander our opponent in order to win.

Spiritual leaders lose credibility when they willingly attack and slander someone instead of presenting truth in love. 

We tend to think we have a responsibility to expose others for their beliefs, when in reality we need to speak the truth of God’s word.
