The four lepers: Share it-1
2 Kings 7:10 “So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, [there was] no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they [were].”
In today’s meditation, these four lepers did something that many of us wouldn’t, they shared the good news! They told the king and the people of Israel that the famine was over. They shared with the people their good fortune.
These were the same people that pushed them outside the gate and labeled them outcasts. It’s obvious that these lepers had very good hearts. They could have seen it as payback time for the people that pushed them out. They could have hidden all the food, jewelries and treasures and forced the community to pay for it but they didn’t. They freely shared the information and goods.
They didn’t repay evil with evil. They allowed good to overcome evil. Beloved, that’s the spirit of a champion. These folks knew that whatever you share multiplies.
They were not stingy neither did they hold back. They let go! They even blamed themselves for not announcing it earlier.
2 Kings 7:9 “Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day [is] a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.”
Friend, we are carriers of good news and we must emulate these lepers. Despite their condition, they’ve come to an understanding that what they have is from God and it’s not just meant for them. It’s obvious they have conquered greed.
The world’s number one problem is greed and selfishness. A greedy or selfish man is one with excessive desire for more than is needed or deserved, especially of money, wealth, food, or other possessions.
