Wednesday, September 20: “Temptation of P.C.”

1 Kings 22: 4: “[Ahab] said to Jehoshaphat, ‘Will you go with me to battle at Ramoth Gilead?’ And Jehoshphat said to the king of Israel, ‘I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.” What King Jehoshaphat said to King Ahab was ok–up to a certain point. But notice he could not truthfully say, “My God as your god.”

For twenty-two years Ahab had been worshiping idols and leading Israel to do the same (1 Kings 16: 29-33). As Judah’s king, should Jehoshaphat have given in to the temptation of political correctness, hobnob with God’s enemy, and risk the nation’s place before God? As it was, he almost got himself killed, as we will see in tomorrow’s continuation of the story. SHOW LESS
