In all the turmoil of our country, it is important to turn to God and not put our trust in people. In Kings, Naaman’s life gives good illustration of the frailty of people. 2 Kings 5:1 reads, “Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper.” Leprosy was a terrible disease in which the flesh essentially destroyed itself until ultimately, the person died. It is commonly associated with sin, since it represents how our flesh  destroys itself, ultimately leading to spiritual death. Naaman’s story reminds us people can seemingly have everything going for them, and others might consider them great, but ultimately, they are on a path to spiritual death unless they are forgiven of their sins. Certainly, we pray for our leaders, but our trust is always in the Lord!
