If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked. Proverbs 29:12
Leaders are only as good as the information they receive from their subordinates. Unfortunately, these subordinates have their own agendas when they serve under their bosses. That agenda could include political power, financial independence, and others.
Pray today for these subordinates/advisers so they may have wisdom and a solid grasp of the issues when they brief their employers.
