Topic toh kibangthim Q & A hoi kasah1, veu hite:
A bright young man asked an experienced executive :
"What is the secret of your success?"
"Two words, young man -- GOOD DECISIONS."
"But, sir how do I learn to make good choices?"
"Two words, young man -- BAD DECISIONS."
Learning from trials & mistakes make for a good leader.
Tun, thupi "10 Characteristics of a good leader" vepan taute.
01. Wisdom :
Proverbs 8:15 - By me (wisdom) kings reign and rulers make laws that are just. Proverbs 20:8 - When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes.
All leaders must have God's wisdom. Jesus himself was filled with God's wisdom and grace (Luke 2:40). Wisdom is different than mere knowledge. The wise leader can see farther than others. His spiritual discernment is what sets him apart as God's leader. The church today is in dire need of wise leaders.
02. Integrity :
Proverbs 16:12 - Kings detest wrongdoing, for a throne is established through righteousness. Proverbs 29:4 - By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down.
03. Love :
Proverbs 20:28 - Love and faithfulness keep a king safe; through love his throne is made secure.
How we love is more important than what we know or achieve. The Pharisees in Jesus' days were religious but unloving. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
04. Seeks Good Advisers :
Proverbs 11:14 - For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure. Proverbs 25:4,5 - Remove the dross from silver and out comes material for the silversmith; remove the wicked from the king's presence, and his throne will be established through righteousness.
Every effective leader needs advice and seeks advice. The ability to listen to the advice of others is the mark of a great leader.
05. Self Control :
Proverbs 28:15 - Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked man ruling over helpless people.
The leader who cannot control himself will not be able to command the respect of those he leads.
06. Awareness of his Influence :
Proverbs 29:2 - When the righteous thrive, people rejoice; when the wicked rule, people groan.
In almost every era, no country has been able to rise above its leaders. For better or worse, people become like those they follow.
07. Compassion :
Proverbs 29:14 - If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.
Jesus is the ultimate model of taking time for the poor, the outcasts, and children. He was naturally drawn to the weak who needed an advocate. That is why James teaches us that pure religion is to look after orphans and widows in their distress.
08. No Need for Public Approval :
Proverbs 29:25 - Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
The greatest freedom is having nothing to prove and no one to impress. Good leaders are more concerned about pleasing God than their popularity with others. The desire for honor among men makes trusting God almost impossible. The leader who has his eyes on receiving the praise of men is not focused on obeying and pleasing God.
09. Moderation :
Proverbs 31:4-5 - It is not for kings to drink wine; not for rules to crave beer; lest they drink and forget what the law decrees and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
I've seen leaders who were such heavy drinkers that eventually, due to their lack of self control, they lost their positions.
10. Submission to God :
Proverbs 21:1 - A king's heart is in the hand of the Lord; he directs it like a water course wherever he pleases. Hebrews 10:5 - When Christ entered the world he said, Here I am O Lord, I have come to do your will.
This is the most important characteristic of a good leader. When a man or woman is submissive to God and his Holy Spirit, God will direct the person into the ways he can glorify Him the best.
