The power is between your ears. The power is in your heart. (Jim Brown, late pro football legend)

Brown was one of the most powerful runners in college and professional football. He knocked over or simply dragged would-be tacklers with him. Yet, he was smart enough to realize that physical strength is not the real force in life. What a pity that some fight for positions of authority while overlooking power’s true source–wisdom and compassion that come from God.

When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan (Proverbs 29:2).
