God does not expect leaders to bae perfect, but to be whole. Have you appreciated the enormous difference? To have integrity means to be whole, as in a whole number (an “integer”). Despite his or her human frailties, a leader can effectively guide those who follow.

Psalm 32:8 reminds us that leaders must closely observe the flock for its needs and problems. God expects spiritual leaders to serve as guides. A guide gets a person or group safely to a planned destination. The Hebrew word for “guide” gives us several clues as to what God expects from those He uses as leaders:

A guide is a spiritual head who unites and directs people in their walk with God.

A guide takes people on the straight path that leads to fellowship with God.

A guide gives accurate and godly counsel to those who need it.

A guide leads with gentleness and trustworthiness, making others feel safe.

A guide bases his or her direction on the Spirit and the Word of God.

And this is what I’ve just learned during our leaders’ meeting tonight… I am being reminded with one of the youth leaders… thus I am grateful for all the leaders God has put in my life.

Every day the devotional is like what God is saying through it through what I’ve experienced
