In 1Samuel 7, Samuel gives us an example.
He made wise decisions and allowed God to guide him.
He was competent and had character.
- Competence: When you use the gifts God gave you to make wise decisions and accomplish goals, people begin to listen to you.
- Character: When you allow the Holy Spirit to develop and demonstrate godly qualities such as honesty and humility, people grow to trust you.
Are you building influence through competence and character?
