I Samuel 15: 34- 16:1
There are defining moments in our lives that reveal our character.
Those that allow themselves the liberty of a moral failure open the door for more failures to come.
The moral failure of a leader will challenge the integrity of others as well.
As leaders we are not only responsible for our own actions, but also the actions of those we influence.
Will you choose God or man?
When you find yourself having to choose between God or man, look at the decision-making process Samuel went through:
Integrity loss can not be fully restored.
Leaders are defined by the ongoing decisions they make.
Do you allow personal bias to influence your decisions?
Never give yourself permission to avoid doing what is right. Don’t give yourself permission to remain in the valley of depression.
Every right decision that a leader makes will strengthen your influence.
