*NEVER MOCK THESE 3 SETS OF PEOPLE!*
1. Never mock your *HUSBAND:*
Your husband is the head of your family. This is God's order.
Mocking him is defying the laws of God.
Micah mocked David her husband. *She called him a " vain fellow shamelessly uncovering himself".* Her womb was closed. She never had a child for David.
When you begin to *call your husband names, you are in for serious trouble.*
When you *mock your husband, it will adversely affect the innocent children.* (Read 2 Samuel 6)
2. Never mock your *FATHER:*
The Bible is very clear and explicit. *Reuben went to sleep with his father's concubine and he ended up with a curse.* This is mockery.
*Absalom chased his father away from the throne. He died unceremoniously.*
Whatever you do to bring shame to *your father is mockery.*
*Mothers, never instigate your children against their father*. It will be too dangerous for them.
Whatever disagreements you have with their father stops with you. Do not extend it.
Remember, the *Bible only talks about the Father's Blessing.* Let the heart of their father bless the children.
*Malachi 4:6 says... whosoever separates children from their father, upon them shall be a curse*. (NLT)
If you are guilty of this, please humble yourself and go and make things right with your father. If you don't, life will be a struggle for you. Be wise.
3. Never mock a true *SERVANT OF GOD:* Some youths came out of nowhere and began to chant a mockery song against Elisha.
They were torn into pieces by bears.
I met an elderly man in Benin who shared his experience.
He said, on the morning Archbishop Benson Idahosa's death was announced, he was so excited because he hated the man with passion.
He said he sent for two of his friends and they began to toast to Archbishop's death.
While still making noise and bantering in his sitting room, some people ran into his house and told him a gravel tipper had just knocked down his son on his way to lectures at Uniben. The young undergraduate died on the spot.
The elderly man in his seventies said..... 'I have learnt never to mock a true servant of God'.
I have a praying group. One of the women there approached me to come lead the husband to Christ on his death bed.
In humility, the man surrendered his life to Jesus and there was an aura of peace on his embattled face.
Before he breathed his last, he said...... "All my life, I have mocked servants of God.
We are 5 friends and all of them died this way. I am the last of them but now I have made peace with God"
Never join anyone to mock true servants of God.
Job said, what I do not know, I searched out. This is the wisdom of great people. Wise people do not despise SPIRITUAL DIGNITARIES.
