"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"

Father God, thank you for the love of the truth you have given me. Please bless me with the wisdom, knowledge and discernment needed to always present the truth in an attitude of grace and love. Use this blog and Northwoods Ministries for your glory. Help us all to read and to study Your Word without preconceived notions, but rather, let scripture interpret scripture in the presence of the Holy Spirit. All praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Lessons in Humility

This headline appears on BBC’s Business page today:

 US Shares Rise on Summers Withdrawal
Shares in the US and elsewhere are boosted by the news that former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers has withdrawn his candidacy to be head of the US central bank.

And this headline in The Financial Post on August 23rd:

Microsoft shares surge after news CEO Steve Ballmer to step down

It’s almost like having the crowd cheer when the pitcher or goal-tender is pulled from the game after playing poorly. Humility must come hard to a wealthy and powerful man.
