Blinded by his pride and fears Zedekiah In the end, became what he was. His eyes were taken out. He was a prisoner to his fear and pride. And in the end, he was led off into captivity. All his worst fears came true. He became what he was a blind, fearful prisoner. What a harsh and cruel master pride is. What we hear in II John today is so different. John is letting us know how Grace, mercy and truth come to all who love God and His kingdom, more than their own selves, who don't let fear and pride stand in love's way, that way Zedekiah and his officials blindly held on to their own lives. Even after repeated warnings. Let's be alert to any desire within or without, that would dissuade us from the way of love, from the truth and mercy that we have seen in Jesus. John says, watch out, that you do not lose what you have worked so hard to achieve, be diligent, so that you will receive your full reward. And we do that by remaining in the truth of the gospel. Remind your heart each day of the great love God has for you in Christ, you are God's child. You are one who listens to his word and responds to what he says in faith. You have eyes that see ever being freed from the blindness that comes with pride and fear. May you see more today. May you walk more in faith today and experience more freedom today? May you receive your full reward, the love, mercy and grace that is yours in Christ. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters, my son. And that's a prayer that I have for you. May it be so
