Reading through Matthew I’m struck by the contrast of two men.
On the one hand we have Herod who is insecure, feels threatened by the thought of another potential leader emerging.
Then there’s John the Baptist who is secure, so humble and who exudes strength from that humility.
What kind of leader are you? Are you a Herod or a John the Baptist? One is concerned with and builds his kingdom while the other is concerned with and build The Kingdom.
