The Character of a Godly Leader
by Lin Story and Roger Story
(Children's Embassy of Washington, D.C.)
Children's Embassy of Washington, D.C.
A godly leader will lead with HONESTY.
He/she will love the truth, only listen to the truth,
and only speak the truth.
“If a ruler listens to lies all his officials become wicked.”
A godly leader will LOVE the people of our nation enough to do
what is right for the children, for the poor and needy, and for
those who cannot care for themselves.
“Leadership gains authority and respect when the
voiceless poor are treated fairly.”
A godly leader will understand that true success
is found in OBEDIENCE to God and His Word.
“When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice…”
A godly leader will walk in HUMILITY knowing that
he/she needs God’s help. He/she will ask for God’s
wisdom in each difficult situation they face.
“The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom,
and humility comes before honor.”
A godly leader will have the COURAGE to do what
is right for our nation, even when he/she has to
stand alone, or is challenged by other leaders.
“A leader of good judgment gives stability.”
