Integrity and Leadership

“The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you”–John E. Southard.

“You can’t delegate doing the right thing.”

“The effective innovator is the person who is willing to share the credit
generously for successes, and to carry gracefully by himself the blame for the
failures”–Lyle Schaller.

“To endure the cross is not tragedy; it is the suffering which is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ”–Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

“If you do a good job for others you heal yourself at the same time because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure”–Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
