The Power Trip
By Rick Boxx
Dachner Keltner, a University of California, Berkeley psychologist, discovered in his studies that many leaders rise to the top due to their outgoing and considerate personality. Unfortunately, once they arrive, power seems to change them for the worse.
Mr. Keltner told The Wall Street Journal, "It's an incredibly consistent effect. When you give people power they basically start acting like fools. They flirt inappropriately, tease in a hostile fashion, and become totally impulsive."
If you're climbing the corporate ladder and desire to remain anchored to your faith, Jesus had some advice for you.
In John 15:5 he taught, "I am the vine; you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."
