How to Deal With a Person or a Person in a Leadership Role Who is Not Trustworthy?

How do you deal with a person or a person in leadership who is not trustworthy?

  • First focus on yourself and leave the other person in God’s hands.
    • Allow for the possibility that the other person may change. Love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8).
    • Forgive. (Luke 6:37).
    • Expect God to use trials to bring triumph.
    • Pray for those whom have hurt you. (Romans 12:12).
    • Maintain an understanding heart. Hurt people hurt people. (Proverbs 15:1).
    • Behave in a Christ-like manner. (1 Peter 1:13).
    • Remember to forgive. Reconciliation is the end goal. (Luke 17:3-4).
  • If the person is not willing to change.
    • Confront in private. Matt, 18:15-20, Luke 17:3, Gal. 6:1-2.
    • If confronting in private does not work take two or more witnesses. (Matt. 18:16).
    • Church discipline may be necessary (Matt. 18:17).
  • If all else fails, remove yourself from the situation.
