Leadership Promises - Trust Buster

Then three thousand men of Judah went down to the cleft of the rock of Etam, and said to Samson, "Do you not know that the Philistines rule over us? What is this you have done to us?" And he said to them, "As they did to me, so I have done to them." But they said to him, "We have come down to arrest you, that we may deliver you into the hand of the Philistines." Judges 15:11-12
Leadership Promises - Trust Buster
Leadership Promises - Trust Buster.
Samson learned the hard way that trust provides the foundation for all genuine leadership.

This impetuous, volatile, lustful, moody, emotional, and unpredictable man provides a very good example of a very bad leader.

Since no one could trust him, none followed his leadership. Leaders who erode the solid ground of trustworthy leadership usually exhibit one or more of the following signs-Samson displayed them all. Leaders in trouble . . .
  • Fail to address glaring character weaknesses.
  • Count on deception to safeguard themselves.
  • Act impulsively. Are overcome by an area of weakness.
  • Misuse their God-given gifts. Samson's self-centered, undisciplined, and arrogant nature made him an ineffective leader.
The Maxwell Leadership Bible. Good day!
