2 Kings 1
Interesting how Ahaziah destroys those around him as long as he rails against God, trying to bbe in charge himself. But as soon as someone shows submission to the Lord, things turn around, though not for Ahaziah.
I noticed again the same sort of thing last night as my family watched part of "The 10 Commandments" movie (the old one with Yul Brenner). Egypt is destroyed further and further until Pharoah relents.
A leader of men can only lead well by serving them. He can only serve the men he leads by serving and submitting to God first. All earthly authority must be surrendered to, and guided by, heavenly authority.
