Abuse of Power…

Media coverage quickly reveals the abuse of power often seen in high profile political officials. Abuse ranges from issues of morality to ethics. It is not uncommon for people who are elected, raised up, or given a position of power to think they are above the law.

The very thought of power creates the temptation to use that power inappropriately.

God reveals the problem throughout the Old Testament with various kings in Israel. Saul, Jeroboam, Jezebel, Manasseh, and others demonstrated an example of abuse in their power.

It is tragic to learn of God’s men today succumbing to immorality or unethical business deals. In a moment of poor judgment a decision made abuses the power entrusted to them.

Consider the awesome God we serve.

Practice God’s presence… ALWAYS!

Remember the position was given by God’s providence.

Develop an open door policy.

Never say or do anything you would not say or do in your wife’s presence.

Pray… without ceasing.

If we give thought to a few areas, maybe we can begin to understand the proper use of the power entrusted to us by God.
