Position may give you power to control, but trust will give you permission to lead. (Dave Adamson, author)
In today’s society we have seen what people with too much control have done to destroy confidence in their leadership. As Lord Acton famously said, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The leader who leads in a demonstration of integrity and character will not only gain the trust of his people, but he will have their support in following him.
The trustworthy person will get a rich reward. (Proverbs 28:20)
