A Sobering Leadership Principle

man in mirror

Your private life. Your public life.

They are inseparable.

You can try to manage two identities.

It won’t work.

It might for a time. But not for long.

You’ll be discovered.

Your personal junk will impact your professional world.


Better to protect your public life by improving your private life.

And better to do it now.

  1. Agreed Ron! It is written clearly in Job 28:11 that "He searches the sources of the rivers and brings hidden things to light." Psalmist acknowledges in Psalm 69:5 that "You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you."
    Again we receive a warning from Ecclesiastes 12:14 that " For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil."

  2. Spot on Ron. It's something I try to teach young leaders coming up through student leadership in our youth group. Once you become a leader, your life is open to everyone and they'll be looking into it. Make sure you're living above reproach.

  3. Oh such great wisdom! Thank you! My heart responds with this: VERTICAL DEPENDENCE! We need a one on one, heart to heart and spirit to spirit relationship with our AWE-GOD!

    Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, Lord that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided(C) heart, that I may fear your name. (NIV)

    Lord Jesus create in us a heart that is completely open to You. OPENHEARTED! Cause our heart to be undivided, all for YOU and called to YOU 1ST!
