Carried Away

by PamFord Davis  
8/22/2018 / Devotionals


Parents of young children are compelled to teach their tots to share; selfishness comes naturally. If not restrained, children will grow up to be greedy adults. King Ben-hadad demanded more, more, more…

“Now Ben-hadad king of Aram gathered all his army, and there were thirty-two kings with him, and horses and chariots. And he went up and besieged Samaria and fought against it. Then he sent messengers to the city to Ahab king of Israel and said to him, ‘Thus says Ben-hadad, ‘Your silver and your gold are mine; your most beautiful wives and children are also mine.’ The king of Israel replied, ‘It is according to your word, my lord, O king; I am yours, and all that I have.’ Then the messengers returned and said, ‘Thus says Ben-hadad, ‘Surely, I sent to you saying, ‘You shall give me your silver and your gold and your wives and your children,’ but about this time tomorrow I will send my servants to you, and they will search your house and the houses of your servants; and whatever is desirable in your eyes, they will take in their hand and carry away (1 Kings 20:1-6 NASB).”

Imagine seeing all you hold dear being carried away.

Yet, we should be equally concerned about being ‘carried away’ by our greed. Jesus spoke words of warning.

“Then He said to them, ‘Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions (Luke 12:15 NASB).”
