What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase, “The king is dead - long live the king!”? It is an historical phrase coined in France and said after the death of a monarch through the streets and the countryside of their realm.

A preacher extols a king instead of the King of kings
There was a preacher in 19th century Scandinavia who, in the vestry one Sunday morning, heard that the King would be present at worship. Understandably rattled he ditched his well prepared sermon and spoke on and on about the Christian virtues

KING FOR A DAY
Once upon a time, before television, there was radio. You know what radio is--television without pictures. Well, before television, one of the most popular daytime radio programs was called "Queen for a Day."
If I remember it correctly (and it was a long time ago!), each day

KING OF THE JUNGLE
I like the story of the arrogant, prideful lion, who wanted to remind other animals how great he was. He went to the gazelle and roared, "Who is the king of the jungle?"
Trembling, the gazelle answered, "Why, you are, mighty lion."
He went next to the giraffe and

KING OF THE JUNGLE
I'm reminded of the lion who woke up one morning and decided it was time to stroll through the jungle and check on his kingdom. He came first to a giraffe chewing on some leaves up in a tree.
"Hey, long neck," he asked, "Who's the king of the jungle?"
"Why you are on

Imagine for a moment that you were a child in a super rich family. If you wanted a new car, it’s yours. If you wanted a week in Europe or in the South Pacific, no problem. For you, money is no object. Whatever you want is yours.
Most of us will never be in that situation. But, in reality, we are

RICH AS A KING
History books are filled with wealthy people who were practically destitute compared to me. I have triple-tracked storm windows; Croesus did not. Entire nations trembled before Alexander the Great, but he couldn’t buy cat food in bulk. Czar Nicholas II lacked a compound-miter
