Zechariah 4:6

"Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts."
Zechariah 4:6

This could be the word of the Lord unto us as well.  I think that we often think that we can force things, or we think that if we are powerful enough that people will do what we want.  If we just had a better title or more money, then people would listen to us... things like that.  And sometimes it seems like that works for some people.  Even then, I don't think that it is the whole story... and it definitely isn't how God works. :)  More important is to learn to do things by God's spirit.  Through building Zion relationships with people... listening and caring, and doing as God asks.  It might be a slower way to what we want, but it is the only true path to greatness. :)  We'll not only learn to care for people on the way, but we might learn to want better things, and learn to be better people ourselves.

  1. That's a very helpful interpretation of that scripture. Thanks for sharing it. I can remember having read it before and wondering over it.
