Powerful Quote

I’ve been very busy with church and life in general and really haven’t had time to post. I did come across this quote that a friend shared with me today and thought it was worth sharing.

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power” – Abraham Lincoln

  1. Oh how true is that! And unfortunately it is just not in political arenas but it trickles down into all phases of our lives. I’ve met so many power-hungry people in my lifetime that should I let it, it would disillusion me (however I choose not to go that way).
    Hi Karen. Glad you choose not to be disillusioned. While I’m sure we could think of many that abuse the power they’ve been given, there are some that have used their God given power not for their own glory or exaltation but to truly exalt God and help other people.
