Someone put it this way – ‘your attitude is speaking so loudly I cannot hear your words’. This is the burden of validity and acceptance in leadership. Leadership demands authenticity. And authenticity demands that we make every effort to align what we feel internally with what we are expressing outwardly. The result is integrity.
May the Lord lead you to the anchor of knowing without a doubt, that you belong to one larger than yourself. May your identity be shaped deeply by a sense of belonging to the everlasting God, and the majestic values of His commandments and covenant, never any fleeting circumstance, no matter how dire or beautiful it looks.
