In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you. Titus 2:7-8
General Eiwson Hower demonstrates the art of leadership with a peace of string. He put it on a table and say: “pull it and it will follow wherever you wish. Push it and it will go nowhere at all.” It’s just that way when it comes to leading people. They need to follow a person who is leading by example.
John Maxwell: “The most important ingredient of leadership is integrity.”
Importance of Integrity:
Ø It builds trust.
Ø It has high influence value.
Ø It facilitates high standards
Ø It results in a solid reputation, not just image.
Ø It means living it myself before leading others.
Ø It helps a leader be credible, not just clever.
Ø It is a hard-won achievement.
God has put people in our lives, because He trusts us to lead this people in the way that pleases Him. Are we doing the task that God entrusted to us?
