2 Samuel 3: 31 – 39
IS IT WISE TO DIE LIKE A FOOL
1 Sam. 3: 33
The Bible admonishes Christians to be cautious and wise, so as not to fall prey to the innumerable traps of the wicked and the devil on heavenly journey. In the above text, David lamented over the death of Abner because the scripture has provided a remedy for all who killed in self-defense. If the murderer runs into a City of Refuge and remains, he is safe. If the person comes out, anything that happens to him is of his making. He did not take advantage of God’s provision for his security. Abner knew that quite well. He flouted the guideline as he killed Asahel, Joab’s brother. Abner actually, died as a fool (Num. 35 : 6).
Many Christians today know God’s provisions in the Bible on several issues. We are found wanting at the point of putting them to action. We know sanitary rules but fail altogether to observe them. We teach about security and defense procedures but take them for granted. We seek medical advice and medications yet fail to live true to prescriptions. We get information on appropriate feeding formulate, we simply dismiss it as a joke. We are counseled on addictions but wave them aside as normative. These are examples of knowing but not doing. They are cousins to dying as a fool.
We must not forget about, a Minister with RCCG in Abuja, who committed suicide as a result of accommodation problem on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. Michael Arowosaiye was his name. For an unbeliever to attempt suicide is not tasteful by any standard, but a Minister to take his own life is an inconceivable foolishness. Although there may be more to it than meets the eye. No matter the problem calling for attention, it will expire eventually; suicide is not an option at all. Do not die like a fool. God is still on the throne.
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
Wisdom is the principal thing for a successful life; get wisdom.
Lord, grant me wisdom and understanding in all my life endeavours.
