Hungry for Power

Read the Bible in a year by reading Second Samuel 15 and 16 today.
Absalom, the son of David, was hungry for power. Absalom would say, “Oh, that I were made judge in the land, and everyone who has any suit or cause would come to me; then I would give him justice” (2Samuel 15:4).
Watch out for people like Absalom. He sounded as though he was genuinely concerned with Israel’s welfare, for he said that he wanted to give the Israelites justice, but that was just it, he wanted to be the one who did it, although a system was already in place. His hunger for power eventually brought his downfall, but not before he did considerable damage, causing shame to
Israel, and bringing others down with him.
Keep your nose buried in the Scriptures that you might not be led astray.
