Lesson 9

Probe link

Have you heard people when commenting about events around them say: “It’s all about power.” Jesus once said: “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them” (Matthew 20:25).

The abuse of power was a practice that was widespread in Bible times. The author of Ecclesiastes knew about this very well since he was a king and powerful monarchs of his time were his friends. He often wondered why God, who is the ultimate dispenser of power allows its abuse.

Today’s study offers some answers to this challenging question. The final answer, though, may be yet another mystery of life.
