Leadership and Stability

A just king gives stability to his nation, but one who demands bribes destroys it.

Proverbs 29:4 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/pro.29.4.NLT

There is a direct relationship between a just and honest leader and the overall health and stability of the community being led. The integrity of a coach, president, CEO, pastor, teacher, manager, or head of household is significant to the well-being of the people in their sphere of leadership.

People thrive where stability in leadership exists.

The opposite is also true. A leader that deceives, manipulates, demands bribes or insider deals will destroy the community under their leadership. This type of leader is unstable and toxic to the well-being of others.

People survive toxic leaders; they do not thrive under them.

It has been said that one of the most predictable things in life is change. Navigating change from a point of stability is healthy. Trying to handle change in an environment that cannot be trusted is exhausting.

I am a leader. The integrity of my life matters. Every day I get up and seek God to guard and nurture the core of who I am. My day and my life are not my own. As a leader, I have tied my life to the flourishing of others. Their well-being matters to me. My honesty and integrity are key to creating an environment of stability. Stability becomes the platform for walking through change.

Encouragement: Leadership requires selflessness. Honesty and integrity cultivate stability. Every leader is encouraged to guard the core of who they are before God and others. It is a privilege for leaders to recognize the commitment necessary to support the flourishing of others.

Prayer:  Dear Father, thank You for this proverb that calls out the relationships between leadership and stability. I ask that You continue to cultivate in me a life of honesty and integrity that will help others to flourish. I also pray against any temptation for the kind of toxic destruction self-dealing creates within a group of people. Let me lead above reproach in all things.

In Jesus name, Amen.

The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization. This year we had SOWERS in June, July, August, and September. During the summer, SOWER ladies usually work in, or outside, the paint shop with Laurie. The July ladies were tasked ...
