When one rules over men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth. (2 Samuel 23:3,4)

Military leadership doctrine requires that leaders have three principle ethical responsibilities: be a good role model, develop your subordinates ethically, and lead in such a way as to avoid putting your subordinates into ethical dilemmas. The above is unquestionably true, but easier said than done.

Most leaders begin with the best of intentions. However, competing goals within the same organization can sometimes make it difficult to decipher the best path to follow. These pressures make it challenging to do the right thing all the time.

God’s Word gives some timeless advice that works even in the most difficult times. “Fear Him.” Not out of terror, but because God is in charge. He knows what He is doing and deserves our allegiance. By fearing God and doing what He wants done in every situation, you will not become victim to the fear of man. The result will provide the kind of ethical leadership your soldiers deserve and respect
