Renungan harian alkitab, 2 Kings 20, jumat, ” show off bring disaster, pamer mendatangkan bencana”

2 Kings 20:15-18 (NKJV)  And he said, “What have they seen in your house?” So Hezekiah answered, “They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them.”

Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord:

‘Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the Lord.

‘And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.’ “

Karena raja Hezekiah suka pamer, ia memamerkan kekayaan dan barang berharga di istananya kepada Raja Babylonia!

Karena pamer maka bencana besar melanda kerajaan Israel, kerajaan Babylonia terpancing untuk datang dan merampok bahkan bukan hanya semua harta kekayaan yang dirampok, tapi juga menjadikan umat Israel budak budaknya !

Pamer kekayaan, atau pamer  hal lainnya mendatangkan bencana !

Para pembaca janganlah suka pamer awas bencana akan datang kepada orang yang suka pamer! Jaman ini orang orang melalui media sosial  suka pamer kekayaan, pamer makan makanan mahal, pamer jalan jalan tamasya keluar negri, pamer kemesraan kekasih, pamer menunjukan dia hebat berprestasi.

Hendaklah kita rendah hati, dan jangan suka pamer, mari kita belajar dari kisah raja Hezekiah yang suka pamer.
