Just men

“Tell the MAN who sent you to me”  (2 Chronicles 34)  The voice belongs to God.  The speaker is Huldah.  Normally she would have been very concerned to honor the King whose messengers have come to her for counsel.  Here, however, she refers to him by neither name nor title.  To God, Josiah is just a man.  It is a good reminder for me.  I can be so concerned with what people think that I forget how flimsy and short-lived we all really are.  I can lose sight of the Real Glory.  When I pray ” Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name”, I am (or should be) declaring my independence from any other consideration than what He requires.  Not critics, not friends matter the way He does. They are just men.
