Today's reading: 2 Kings 11:1-3

When you hear the word grandmother, Athaliah shouldn't be the picture that comes to mind. Wicked and hungry for power, she brutally murdered all of the male members of the royal family to ensure that she would be the new ruler of Judah. This tragic and sobering account reveals just how sinful we can be apart from God, and specifically shows us the incredible pull and influence that power can wield over us.

The temptation to grab power and abuse it is always before us. So how does having power impact your thinking and actions? What helps you use the power and/or position you have appropriately? Tami

It helps me to remember that there's always someone who's authority I'm under whether it be another human being or God Himself. We're all accountable to someone.

About Me

Hi, my name is Tami Weissert, the P4 facilitator and the "voice" behind the blogs. I'm passionate about helping people grow spiritually and actively encourage Bible engagement through conference speaking and writing. I also served as co-host of the Back to the Bible radio program for over 8 years. A little about me. I'm married to Jeff, and we love scuba diving, playing with our 3 dachshunds and going to Husker football games. I also love growing orchids, singing and Diet Pepsi. I hope you'll join in the conversation as we read the Bible and grow together.
