The Leader’s Character

“For if someone is unable to handle his own affairs,
how can he take care of God’s church?”
I Timothy 3:5

This verse refers to qualifications for church leaders. But the same principle applies in the workplace.

If the decisions we make at home aren’t giving us good results, what makes us think we’ll have different results leading an organization? We are who we are, whether at home, at work, in Walmart, or in a leadership position. Our character at home is who we truly are, and it follows us to work and in every area of life.

Be genuine and cultivate good character all the way through. Don’t hide behind the cheap mask you think everyone can’t see behind.

Lord, help me to improve my inner character first of all.
