2 Chronicles 19:2 KJV
And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord ? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the Lord .
King Jehoshaphat was a good man. He wasn’t like the other kings of Israel who did much evil in the sight of God… yet the wrath of the Lord visited him through Jehu, the seer.
What did Jehoshaphat do wrong?
He supported wicked kings like Ahab and Ahaziah who were very sinful and acted wickedly in God’s sight.
Those who condone evil or act indifferently to such causes are equally guilty. God would not have any of that. The excuse that “but I am not the one doing it” is not a valid claim and God would hear no such whimps.
A believer is expected to shun evil and speak against its appearance in any form.
In this season of lent, let us not only desist from all forms of wickedness but also strive to stay away from ungodly company.
Have a blessed Friday.
