2 Kings 5
When Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, heard that there was a prophet in Israel who had the power to heal his leprosy, the king of Syria sent him with a letter to the king of Israel. The latter thought such a request was the Syrian king’s way of seeking a quarrel with him, but Elisha assured him that he would deal with Naaman. At first Naaman balked when he was told by Gehazi, Elisha’s servant, to wash in the Jordan seven times, but he humbled himself, followed the instructions, and was cured. Sadly, Gehazi saw this as an opportunity for material gain, and because of his lie and his covetousness, he was struck with the leprosy of Naaman.
READING of 2 KINGS 5
Lord, I thank You for this account of this Gentile’s healing and conversion to You. I also thank You for the warning about the deceitfulness of the flesh and the lure of material gain. Let my character be free from covetousness so that I will be content with what I have.
