20 Days of Stories You Have Probably Never Heard

Nehemiah 1:11
O Lord, I beseech You, may Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere Your name, and make Your servant successful today and grant him compassion before this man.

DAY 3: Numbers 16: Korah, Dathan and Abiran: Gulp!
After Aaron and Miriam led a rebellion against Moses, a man named Korah, along with two others, Dathan and Abiran, accused Moses of bad leadership. The issue here was power. Who would be in charge? As with Aaron and Miriam, they were jealous of Moses. These three men lost everything as a result.

Someone said, “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” That someone was right.
