Today's reading: 2 Kings 11:1-3

When you hear the word grandmother, Athaliah shouldn't be the picture that comes to mind. Wicked and hungry for power, she brutally murdered all of the male members of the royal family to ensure that she would be the new ruler of Judah. This tragic and sobering account reveals just how sinful we can be apart from God, and specifically shows us the incredible pull and influence that power can wield over us.

The temptation to grab power and abuse it is always before us. So how does having power impact your thinking and actions? What helps you use the power and/or position you have appropriately? Tami
