A leader that cannot be trusted or respected is not a leader—he is an office holder. (Jeff Bogue, pastor)

It’s a tragedy when we discover that someone in a government or community position of influence cannot be trusted. He or she may still hold the office and exercise certain powers of their authority, but it’s a sad state of affairs. In our elections, we should look for people who are not only gifted and capable but who also demonstrate integrity and are trustworthy.

Wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. (Proverbs 28:2)

If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. (Romans 12:8)
