A Message From Bishop Michael

 

During the closing days of 2018 as I was reading a daily devotional on leadership. I came across this quote, “When you’re looking for potential leaders, if someone you’re considering lacks loyalty, he’s disqualified.” The admonition that was given by the author was don’t even consider taking him on the journey with you because in the end, he’ll hurt you more than help you. For the remainder of the days in 2018, I pondered profoundly over this admonition.

Apparently, what was said had a great impact on me because now I am writing my reflections and sharing them with you. Loyalty is defined as a strong feeling of support or allegiance. Some of the synonyms are: allegiance, faithfulness, devotion, reliability, trustworthiness, dedication and commitment. So, when looking for people to join your team, they should possess these qualities.  The author suggests if potential team players lack theses qualities that they are disqualified. No matter how gifted the individual may be, he/she is deemed unsuitable or ineligible to be part of the team.

I believe that loyal people will honor their leader and will honor their commitment to the ministry. We live in an age where loyalty to a person and ministry is as if it were a dirty word. I believe that a person who lacks loyalty also lacks integrity and character. 

When I speak about one’s loyalty, I am not suggesting servility or compliance at any cost. I am advocating that those who serve will be committed, dedicated, faithful, reliable and trustworthy.

As we enter a new year, it might be a good time for all of us to examine ourselves to determine our dedication, commitment, faithfulness, reliability and trustworthiness. I strongly believe that the fruit of our loyalty to this ministry will be manifested in the fulfillment of what the Lord has for H.F.D.W.C.

I am not asking for a team of yes-men and yes-women, for that’s not loyalty; that’s control and manipulation. It has been stated “loyalty to an unjust cause is a perversion of honor.” Loyal people not only offer dedication but they also offer inspiration. They not only offer commitment but they also offer correction when needed. They not only give honor but they are honest and truthful.

I believe that the following quote sums it all up., “loyalty means I am down with you whether you are wrong or right, but I will tell you when you are wrong and help you get it right.

Standing In Our Place,

Bishop Michael
