The Influence of Wicked and Righteous Leaders

As human beings, we are attuned to authority, and leaders can inspire us to do things we otherwise would not–for good and ill. This lesson uses the examples of kings of Israel and Judah to teach lessons on leadership. This section covers:

  • Principles of leadership in the scriptures
  • Attributes of good leadership
  • How we inspire people
  • Lessons of good and bad leadership in the reading
  • The balance of obedience and conscience
