Good Power

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 4:1-3

All of us possess personal power, and with that power we are constantly influencing those around us—our family, friends, co-workers. Power can be intoxicating, and the temptation to misuse our power to dominate and oppress others is strong. Thankfully, with God as our guide, we can overcome this temptation and use the power God has given us wisely and well.

How are you using the power you possess? Is it your goal to use what power you have for good? Are you grieved when you observe injustice? How often do you help others who aren't in a position of power and are in need? Tami
