The scripture reading today is Psalm 82:3, NIV

“Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.”

This Psalm is basically God addressing an assembly of heavenly beings telling them they must act "justly." In doing so He was stating that He expects all in leadership situations to act justly or He will "end their rule." This Psalm was constructed even before the birth of Christ, but is shockingly relevant to the world of leadership and influence we live in and participate in today.

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for being my strength to deal with life's challenges and being with me side by side as I am daily forced to confront my limitations. Amen.
