Does that make you wince after reading?
Power struggles happen; it’s that simple yet stressful.
We find ourselves in the midst of conflicts at work, home, in civic clubs and sadly even in many churches.
‘Government gridlock’ is nothing more than a politically correct catch phrase for power struggles.
Are you aware that Jesus reprimanded his disciples when a power struggle surfaced?
“Now came an argument among them as to which of them would be greatest [in the coming kingdom]! But Jesus knew their thoughts, so he stood a little child beside him and said to them, ‘Anyone who takes care of a little child like this is caring for me! And whoever cares for me is caring for God who sent me. Your care for others is the measure of your greatness (Luke 9:46-48 Living Bible).”
