RE Verse reading–Isaiah 30:1-17, 31:1 (day five) “Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help” (vs 31:1) Hezekiah was a good king. Very good compared to some. The Bible reports with respect the instances of his faith, prayer and courage. (read 2 Kings 19 as an example) Most scholars believe, however, that Hezekiah supported the alliance with Egypt as a protection from Assyria. It would have devastating results for his nation. Can a good man make a bad decision? Yes. Nothing in our faith teaches us to become careless or over-confident. “Let him who thinks he stand, take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12) Wise carpenters use to say “measure twice, cut once”. Followers of Christ say “pray twice, decide once”. May the Lord give us a healthy humility as we seek to stay in step with the Spirit. “We should say, ‘If the Lord wills. . .we shall do this or that’ ” (James 4:15) Careful, friends! Even good men can make mistakes.
