I recently read an article about the World’s Least Powerful People.
It is not uncommon for news media outlets to offer plenty of list describing the “Best” or “Most Powerful” people on the planet. For instance, Forbes magazine presents its annual list of top 100 celebrities or the 400 richest Americans…or the world’s most powerful women.
Other organizations commonly issue their lists of the most powerful people in the world; however, a website called 24/7 Wall Street has an unusual twist on the theme. Its creators put together a list called the “100 LEAST Powerful People in the World.”
The list includes corporate executives, athletes, politicians and celebrities who share one common characteristic—they USED to be powerful but are not anymore.
Some of the individuals on this least-powerful-people list were victims of circumstances and others made poor business decisions. None of them chose to become powerless, and none of them set out to make the LEAST POWERFUL list. My guess is that you would not choose to be on that list either.
However, the Bible tells us that 2,000 years ago, God’s son made just such a decision. He chose to leave Heaven and come to this earth. He chose to be on the list, and He did it for you.
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
