Jeremiah 41:2 KJV
Then arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men that were with him, and smote Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan with the sword, and slew him, whom the king of Babylon had made governor over the land.
When the banking crisis began in Ghana, a couple of people had intel on their banks and could have decided to empty their accounts. Well some actually did. For those who didn’t or couldn’t, I’m sure they were the worst hit.
It is one thing knowing a misfortune is just at your doorstep, one you could have probably done something about but did nothing, and another thing experiencing the anguish of your inactions. You curse your stars and never seem to get it out of your head.
Gedaliah suffered a similar fate. A governor who threw caution to the wind and ended up dying by the very hands everyone knew were coming for him. Such folly, such arrogance, his death was a foolish one, which caused the death of many other worshippers.
No matter how anointed we are, we need common sense to operate sometimes. Why? Because common sense is actually a gift from God Himself. Of what use is a gift if it cannot be used by the ones it is gifted to? I pray for a people who will apply some more wisdom even in the expression of their faith.
Have a blessed day.
