Confident Leadership

An Exemplary Leader is Reverent

The last trait mentioned in the scout law is reverence. It states "A scout is reverent". This means that he is reverent towards God, faithful to his religious duties, and respectful towards people that have other beliefs.

 

An exemplary leader must also be reverent towards God, as well as respectful towards what others believe. Personally, I have come to realize that acknowledging God's control over the business is a much better way of doing things. A lot more peaceful! He is much wiser than I am and so His way of doing things is the most excellent way, therefore I must be reverent towards Him and follow His plan, without quitting along the way. It's also important to allow others to believe the way they do, respecting them and loving them all the same. Afterall, it's not what we do that matters in the end, it's about what God can do through us, whether we acknowledge that fact or decide to take all the credit ourselves. Acknowledging that there is a being that is higher and wiser than us "mere mortals" and being reverent towards Him is something that is very important, I do believe.

 

So, as an exemplary leader, learn to be reverent towards God, and also be respectful, loving, and caring towards those who do not have the same beliefs as you do.
