On The Temptation of Power

I will continue to highlight the discipline of secrecy. However, I must say that Sharon Hodde-Miller’s article on power is excellent. Here is an excerpt: ” . . . worldly power is not a neutral entity. It has the potential to change an individual in the most fundamental ways. It can distort our vision by perverting the way we see ourselves and those around us. This means that Christians are to handle power with fear and trembling. Worldly power is not beyond the redemptive work of God, but it is a great seducer that has ruined the lives of men and women throughout history.”
