Rules and Rulers
Thursday, August 17, 2023
Purple Blossoms, Precious,
Gideon said to them, ‘I will not rule over you, and my son will not rule over you; the Lord will rule over you.’
The greatest among you will be your servant.
Words of Grace For Today
Purple rules over others.
Power gone amok!
Purple is precious
Purple is soft
Purple is comfort
Purple is a spectrum
Purple is God’s colour of grace
Purple is exquisite.
Purple is the colour of lord and servant turned right-side up by God’s Word calling those who would lead to be servants, not rulers.
What kind of servants of Christ will we be, will others experience us to be?
Will we live out the Holy Spirit’s gifts enabling us to be
a precious spectrum of comforting colours
for all around?
