I have been asking myself, where do I see the Spirit of Herod the Great? In the world around me I see that power corrupts. Where there is power and influence it is human nature to do anything to keep that power.
This hurts my heart.
SO MUCH of the hurt and suffering in our fallen world is based on this principle. When the sitting authority is threatened, it can turn murderous very quickly, and it is usually the young, the powerless, the innocent who suffer.
But I also want to ask where I see the spirit of Herod in myself.
