Inspiring Leaders

“God trusted us enough to make us His ambassadors to an often faithless, brutal world. The choice is ours. Will our lives be a Kiddush Hashem, or God forbid, the opposite? To have done something, even one act in a lifetime, to make someone grateful that there is a God in heaven who inspires people to do good on earth, is perhaps the greatest achievement to which anyone can aspire. Shakespeare rightly defined the challenge: “Be not afraid of greatness.” A great leader has the responsibility both to be an ambassador and to inspire their people to be ambassadors as well.”
