This is the third installment in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW1. This particular episode contrasts two key individuals in the early twentieth century demonstrating the importance of humility and the devastation of pride. Both of these men were kings and both desired the favor of France. Edward VII, the King of England, sought it through lowness, honor, and respect. Meanwhile, William II, the emperor of Germany, sought it through bullying, threats, and shows of self-importance. One of these men succeeded in winning the favor of the French, the other one started a world war as a result of his failed method.
