Sinking Ships

King Jehosaphat was a good king gone bad.  He chose to make an alliance with King Ahaziah of Israel who was very wicked and this was a very bad choice. 

As a consequence, we read in 2 Chronicles 20 that God decided to destroy their work.  So the fleet of ships they had bought met with disaster and never even got out to sea.

Do we ever have sinking ships?  Do we ever have big plans that don’t work out?

Maybe it didn’t work out because we were partnering up with people we shouldn’t be.  Or maybe it failed because we made a different bad choice along the way.  I think the secret is to learn from our mistakes.  We made the bad choice once – lets just not do it again.  Makes sense, right?

Then I have to ask the question – why do we often do it again?  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.

One sunken ship is even, don’t you think?

Dear Father, please help us learn from our sunken ships.

What do you think?
