REMIND ME OF FAIRNESS
King Herod exemplified the unscrupulous leader who reacts to threats by turning to his dark side and trying to eliminate the competition by any means possible. Herod ordered the slaughter of innocent children in an attempt to protect his possessions. Some would say no businessman would ever take a life to protect a business. History is full of proof to the contrary.
The irony in King Herod's case is much the same as it is in the cases of all unscrupulous leaders. They attempt to protect things that are temporal. They wrongly believe their possessions are of their own making and that they control their destiny. In reality, they are never in control. In Herod's case, his worship of the temporal held eternal implications for him.
Always REMIND ME OF FAIRNESS Lord, so that I may achieve success in business and life eternal.
