Don’t Be A Rash Leader

2 Kgs. 9:27-29  

Jehu was sent mainly to the house of Israel (Northern Kingdom). But because of his untamed quests and pride of heart to show that he was valiant, he killed Ahaziah, king of Judah and even his forty-two brothers (2Kgs. 10:12-14). He was ruthless in his attack, killing and wasting lives. His reforms were born out of pride and hatred and not love to God or pity to any mortal man. No wonder he failed woefully and did not last. He did not have any significant impact because of his rashness.

Point of Emphasis:   A hateful or vengeful heart leads to harshness, brutality, everlasting sorrow and regret.

Prayer Point:            Lord, deliver me from every spirit of hatred, revenge and give me the heart of love and care so that I can effect transformation in my own sphere of influence.
