Lenten Devotion: Day Eighteen

Jesus tells the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.  "Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony."  (Luke 16:25)
(The Oglala Tribal President describes his attempt to meet with the Governor of Nebraska to discuss the problems in Whiteclay.) 

Christ, thank you for leaders who are like you.  Those who are servants of all the people.  Who do not abuse their position for personal gain.  Who do not exploit their power in order to enrich their family and friends.  Inspire more servant leaders among us.
