“…your power will ruin you.”


I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.”

John 13:16

As the Pope recently revealed in a Ted Talk, “…your power will ruin you.” I don’t know about you, but when I read the words of Jesus and listen to the reminder from the head of the Catholic Church, I yearn for powerlessness. Might we seek to serve, instead of to assert power over others.
