Sometimes leaders who use information to their advantage are looked at as being “shady.” This is not always the case. Some say information is ‘power’. I am not sure of that one, but it cannot be denied that information is powerful at times.
Every good leader leans on the use of ‘carefully chosen information’ to leak out to accomplish what needs to be done in that given situation. Paul a student of the Word and Culture, realizes he knows something that he ‘resourcefully’ uses to his advantage. That may be an understatement considering it saved his life.
Be careful, however, information can be used for good or for evil. Use discretion when using information as a leader to move your agenda forward.
Acts 23: 6 Then Paul, knowing that some of them were Sadducees and the others Pharisees, called out in the Sanhedrin, “My brothers, I am a Pharisee, descended from Pharisees. I stand on trial because of the hope of the resurrection of the dead.”
