STOP AND THINK – Trust is the foundation of leadership. (John Maxwell, motivational speaker and author)

People may be attracted to public figures because of their music, acting, or athletic skill—or, perhaps, because of their persuasive speaking ability or their success in some public venue. But unless you find that person to be trustworthy, you will very likely look to someone else for leadership. Character and integrity are not built on skill or attractiveness but on trust.

Select capable men . . . who fear God, trustworthy men . . . and appoint them as officials (Exodus 18:21).
