Sometimes good news seems just too good to be true.
The leper Naaman initially felt insulted that all he must do to be healed was dip in the Jordan River. God’s grace often comes off as offensive to unbelievers.
Gehazi, on the other hand, felt shocked that his master Elisha took no money from Naaman for his healing. So Gehazi took some money in secret and thus later suffered discipline.
God’s grace has problems, as it were—offensive to unbelievers and abused by believers.
But it’s our only hope.
2 Kings 5
