A Righteous Leader…

Righteous leaders flourish like a palm tree. Notice their characteristics.

Grow like a cedar in Lebanon, a dynamic characteristic.

Planted in the house of the Lord, a strong root system.

Flourish in the courts of our God, a healthy development.

Yield fruit in old age, the beauty of godly leadership.

Full of sap and green, reflecting youthful strength and vigor.

Declare that the Lord is upright, which draws out purpose.

A righteous leader experiences these benefits and they bring others into the greatness of God. Let us lead with the righteous spirit of godliness.

An Objective Leader…

Objectivity carries the thought of being uninfluenced by personal feelings or opinions when considering and representing facts. The ability to lead objectively is rare, if not impossible.

Jesus said, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment” (Jn. 7:24).

From this thought we learn several lessons.

Examine the facts carefully. Make certain all the facts have been gathered.
Study more deeply and diligently. Emotions tend to rationalize truth. Dig!
Ask penetrating questions. Good questions develop depth to the information.

One word that should characterize the quality of all leaders is objectivity.
