With Great Power…

You’ve probably heard the popular saying, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Many people throughout history have been credited with this quotation or something similar, but my personal favorite is Ben Parker, Spiderman’s uncle. The idea of a teenage boy suddenly being given great power and needing to learn the responsibility that goes along with such power resonates with me. I think a similar thing happens to us when we become pastors’ wives. We are regular women with our own individual struggles who are thrust into a position of power simply by marrying a man who happens to be a pastor.

Now, I don’t mean power in the sense of church politics, or being able to influence decisions simply through marriage to an “important” person in the church. I mean the power of words.
