just like them
Jehu followed the words of the Lord to a "T" as how to deal with Ahab's family and the prophets of Baal, but when you come to this verse, for whatever reason, Jehu completely turns around and has no regard about following the Lord.
My initial reaction in reading that verse was, "I don't get how one could do that?" the reality is in my own life I do the very same thing. There are times that I heed the word of the Lord and follow diligently what I believe that Lord is calling my to do, but there are other times that I live with the mentality that I can do it on my own.
So often as I read through the story of all these different kings, and I see them described as men who "did evil in the sight of the Lord," I think to myself that they are fools, but I forget that in many ways I am just like them.
Lord, help me to see that I need you just as much as anyone else needs you.
