LEADERSHIP: PORTRAIT OF A GODLY LEADER

leadership

“Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he honors those who fear the Lord; he who swears to his own hurt and does not change; he who does not put out his money at usury, nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.” Psalm 15:1-5

What qualities should every leader possess? Psalm 15 furnishes us with a list of many of the necessary traits. David pictures a godly leader as one who:

  • Possesses integrity
  • Does not participate in gossip
  • Does not harm others
  • Speaks out against wrong
  • Honors others who walk in truth
  • Keeps their word even at personal cost
  • Isn’t greedy to gain at the expense of others
  • Is strong and stable

 

Be blessed,
