A question in a personality test inventory asks: “Would you rather be a well-performing but not trustworthy boss or an ill-performing boss who always walks the talk?

When I was young, I usually looked down upon the importance of integrity. The performance allowed me to be applauded under the spotlight. But the accumulation of life experience urges me to use my power to empower. In which integrity does matter. Capability makes me good performance, but only good characters guarantee life-long success. I started developing good characters. As it is said: “Keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you. – 1 Peter 4:19.” Keep doing what is good and right, and constantly practice the biblical traits such as kindness, generosity, compassion, and honesty. What we value most is what we will work hardest to attain. Like St. Paul of Tarsus, I pray that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and insight. In other words, knowledge and insight are important, but as a godly leader, good character is indispensable.
