Attack the Messenger

When the message doesn’t suit, attack the messenger.  It’s an old trick

Today’s reading:  1 Kings 16:21-18:46

It is a foolish but common ploy to attack the person delivering a true, irrefutable but inconvenient message.  A wise person will take heed to a warning and make amends quickly.  Today we meet a king who was neither wise nor godly and the prophet who delivered the unwelcome message.
