Day 172

“Elisha left Jericho and went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, a group of boys from the town began mocking and making fun of him. “Go away, baldy!” they chanted. “Go away, baldy!”” (2 Kings 2:23 NLT)

Cheeky boys! In the next verse these unruly children come a cropper and meet a painful end.

I wonder why some children are so rude?

But I do think that perhaps in those far off Biblical days, things were a bit harsh. We need to try and understand why they behaved that way.

Understanding and cooperation are better than a harsh and brutal punishment…

Aren’t they?
