There is no better antidote to the dangerous lust for power than to serve others. That’s the contention of the late Chuck Colson, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon and founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries. He learned that whether we are serving our spouse and children, those in the workplace or in our church, our service has the potential to communicate the unvarnished love of Christ.
