The Three-Headed Monster
Morning Thought: There’s a three-headed monster that wants to rob you of your authority and power in God. It’s lust and pride lurks behind the world’s ways. The temptation comes in the classic form of ‘gold, girls/guys and glory.’ The Lord warned the Hebrew kings about it and gave them the solution: let my Word saturate you. “The king, moreover, must not acquire great numbers of horses for himself…He must not take many wives, or his heart will be led astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold…he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law…he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the Lord his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees” (Deu. 17:16-19 NIV).
