Our Daily Manna September 18, 2017: ODM devotional – What The King Told The Gypsy

Topic: What The King Told The Gypsy [Monday 18 September, 2017]

(2 Kings 5:15-27).

A King once met a gypsy ( Member of a group of Shepherds based in Europe who are actually Hindus) on horseback on the way home from a journey and the gypsy asked him: “On what account would you prefer to lose your kingship?” The King replied: “On account of wine or women and not because of money.” “Why?”asked the gypsy and the King replied sharply: “Because losing my crown for the sake of money will make me look like a thief.” To the king, a thief is more intolerable than a drunk and a flirt, but as far as God is concerned, on no account should you fall because no evil is more tolerable than the other. Sin is sin and has no category! God wants you to use today’s devotional to answer the questions: “What can make you fall? What is making you to fall?”

Hear Saint Augustine: “The man who lives according to God, owes a perfect hatred to evil men; not that he should hate the man on account of his fault, nor love the fault because of the man.” Get the message: You must hate that weakness and not yourself. Samson fell by women! David, by a woman! Gehazi fell by money! Judas by money! Moses fell by the effect of pride and anger; Lucifer fell by the effect of pride!

Deal with whatever can make you fall or is making you to fall. Robert Wilensky wrote: “No man chooses evil because it evil; he only mistakes it for the happiness, the good he seeks.” That weakness if not conquered can become your window of tears because sin fascinates, then assassinate!
