If you don't tell them, who will?

“We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”

'Don't Look Back'

Memory Verse: 2 Kings 7: 9 “Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.””

The Word for Today devotional by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) says

The Syrian army had surrounded the city of Samaria and nothing could get in or out. It was a desperate situation. Eventually the inhabitants began starving to death.

Four lepers who’d been quarantined and forced to live outside the city walls decided to go into the Syrian camp hoping to find mercy, and maybe food and water. But when they got there they discovered an army of angels had scattered the Syrians, who fled leaving behind food, water, clothing, and treasure.

These four men could not believe their good fortune! They ate, drank, exchanged their rags for fine clothing, gathered treasure and hid it where they could find it later. Then they remembered that in Samaria their own people were hungry, thirsty, needy, sick, and dying.

They were faced with the dilemma: Do we keep this all to ourselves, or share it with those who need it as much as we do? ‘

Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”’

Today you will meet someone who is spiritually hungry, and what he or she needs is Jesus.

So what are you going to do about it? If you do not tell them, who will? If you do not share the good news, they may die spiritually. You say, ‘But I’m timid’. God used four social outcasts to bring good news of deliverance. And if you let Him, today He will use you too.
