Loyalty makes a person attractive.
There is something wrong with your character if opportunity controls your loyalty.
I must admit that this subject is a sensitive one for me. As most leaders have found through difficult experiences, people can be very fickle when it comes to loyalty.
I hate disloyalty. I can’t stand it. The spirit behind betrayal is the same adulteress spirit that seduces people into a false reality. They are delusional. They believe a lie by telling it. I’ve seen the darkness envelop them, work them like puppets, and speak words through them like a ventriloquist.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is the person who is loyal to their disadvantage, that person who will pay the price to guard their word and character. They’re attractive people, aren’t they?
As a leader, I have learned my lesson. When I was young and naive, I trusted people. When I became older and wiser, I tested people.
I worked for a leader who had been burned many times by disloyal, even to the point of creating a suspicious attitude in him toward all others. When he had in mind a promotion for someone, he would carefully orchestrate a situation to test their loyalty. If they failed, they never knew that he had a better situation planned for them. If they passed, he would give them a huge opportunity.
Some leaders find this is a difficult concept to grasp; however, I recommend that you study Matthew 25 concerning the Parable of the Talents. Jesus teaches this qualification before promotion concept.
