Lazaroo – Thursday, August 1, 2013

Aug 01, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with humility:

“When they returned to Elisha, who was staying in Jericho, he said to them, ‘Didn’t I tell you not to go?’”
(2 Kings 2:18)

Elisha had every right to say that, Jesus:

“I told you so.”

I’ve said it myself.

When it’s true, it’s hard not to say.

After all, when I tell somebody to do something

and they don’t do it

or when I tell somebody not to do something

and they do it anyway

it stings

makes me feel disrespected.

So when their “better idea” goes down in flames
when my original advice is proved right

it’s hard not to smile smugly
rub their noses in it.

But please, LORD…

help me resist that temptation!

You alone know how often I’ve disregarded the wise advice of others

had it come back to bite me
had to cut myself a big ol’ generous slice

of humble pie.
