When the Godly Are Foolish


From: £1.50


2 Samuel 24; 1 Chronicles 21

Sadly, we do not reach perfection by growing older. Age alone does not guarantee maturity or freedom from error. As Elihu said to Job, “The abundant in years may not be wise” (Job 32:9). So true. Sometimes the aged saints among us act downright foolish! When these saints are also leaders, the consequences are usually greater. Consider the aged and otherwise godly David—a father of many, a courageous warrior in battle, a king for nearly four decades, and a sensitive man of God. In spite of these achievements and experiences, he made a foolish decision based on pride and fell into Satan’s trap. From his error, we can all learn valuable lessons.
