Devotion for February 03, 2008 The verdict of history has not been kind toward those who appointed themselves as rulers over others. Napoleon famously crowned himself emperor rather than appear subject to the church. Other self-appointed dictators make up a Rogue’s Gallery of tyrants. Some cult leaders like Jim Jones led many other people...

Devotion for February 05, 2008 Many people today have become uncomfortable with the mention of God’s anger.

Devotion for February 06, 2008 Students are known to complain, “Why do I have to know this? I’m never going to use it in real life!” When it comes to studying history, they protest that all the names and dates are irrelevant bits of musty minutiae. This misses the point; although they might not be asked to recall the significance of the date...

Devotion for February 09, 2008 Two Old Testament stories paint a picture to help us understand the authority God gave Moses and how He meant for him to use it. The story of Joseph in Genesis and the story of Mordecai in Esther have parallel conclusions: both rise to power and receive the king’s signet ring, giving them power to act in the...

Devotion for February 10, 2008 Jean Racine, a French playwright living in the days of Louis XIV, understood what “royal favor” was all about. Having written two works praise-worthy of the king, Racine was honored by a widely sought-after invitation to the palace. His great reward: he would watch Louis XIV wake up in the morning. This high...

Devotion for February 17, 2008 An executive at Oracle described his company’s CEO, Larry Ellison, in these words: “The difference between God and Larry is that God doesn’t believe he is Larry.” This can be an area of temptation and subsequent failure in so many leaders: they think they’re indispensable and infallible. Sadly, this isolates...

Devotion for February 18, 2008 Henri Nouwen has written powerfully on the subject of Christian leadership. His story was unusual in many ways.
