By the time he was in his early twenties, he owned nearly twenty-five hundred acres of land, and his military fame had been published in London in a pamphlet, The Journal of Major George Washington.
He was a man of power and prestige, stature and symbolism, but according to 7Men and the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas, he should be known for the moments when he surrendered his own power to God. I agree. George was another man that God magnified, and then in the moment God brought the power to a test, and he was the first of many presidents and America’s founders who turned the magnification of power back on to the God who made him.
Is it too late for a new year’s resolution? I’m making one today…in the year to come and years to come, I am going to (Lord-Willing) read a biography about every American President. This is going to be quite a hard job, but that’s my goal. I’ll keep you posted.
Hope you had a nice Presidents Day!
