…So Could I!

If Abraham could hand his wife over to other men–two times!; if Isaac could show partiality to Esau; if Jacob could deceive his brother and steal the birthright; if Gideon, Barak, and Jephthah could doubt the promises of God; If Samson could give his strength to pagan women–twice!; if David could commit adultery and premeditated murder, and in pride count the number of Israelites over whom he ruled; if Solomon could be led astray by many women to worship foreign gods; if Baruch could seek accolades for helping Jeremiah write his book; if Peter could deny the Gospel by trying to stop Jesus from going to the cross, by telling Jesus not to wash his feet, by rejecting the vision of the unclean animals–twice!, and by not sitting with Gentile Christians; if James and John could try to use Jesus to get to the top, and desire to call fire down from heaven on those who would not believe the Gospel; and if the apostle John could fall down to worship Angels–twice!…so could I! Let the one who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
