Leaders Beware…

Those with a platform need to beware of the inner life…

“His fame spread far and wide, for he was greatly helped until he became powerful. But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God.”
(2 Chronicles 26:15-16)

“And do you seek great things for yourself? Seek them not.”
(Jeremiah 45:5)

Father,
Always grant me character
that is greater than my gifts
and humility
that is greater than my influence.
Amen.
