Lazaroo – Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Jan 15, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in humble gratitude:

“The company of the prophets from Jericho, who were watching, said, ‘The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha.’ And they went to meet him and bowed to the ground before him.”
(2 Kings 2:15)

They were right, Jesus.

The spirit of Elijah was resting on Elisha.

The other prophets were right to acknowledge it.
They were even right to honor Elisha as their new leader.

But when they bowed to the ground before him

they crossed a line.

No one deserves that but You.

No matter how gifted, how skilled, how accomplished…

the rest of us are mere mortals
instruments in the hands of Almighty God.

When I make that fatal shift from admiring someone’s

talent
hard work
preparation
education
experience
feats of excellence

to worshiping another human being

I’ve turned them from a blessing
into a curse

which hurts not only me

but also endangers them.
