Integrity Moments - May 22, 2017

 

Strong Words

A Silicon Valley venture capitalist recently asked me how a CEO, in a spiritually dark community like Silicon Valley, could apply biblical principles to business when so many are offended by the Christian faith.

Many Christians would love an easy way to make a difference without offending anyone. Although we need to treat others with respect, leaders also need to lead with truth.

Jesus said in Matthew 23:27, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.” 

Jesus wasn’t politically correct and, I don’t believe He expects us to be either. If God has placed you in leadership, you have to be willing to lead with truth.
