DCLM Daily Manna Devotional Message 6 October 2022
One of the greatest fighters of all time was often heard declaring, “I am the greatest the world has ever seen.” Once, he was on an airplane; the flight attendant came and asked him to buckle his seatbelt. He replied, “Superman don’t need no seatbelt.” She responded, “Superman don’t need no plane.”
Ahithophel had been David’s counsellor for years. He was a great man and highly respected. Ahithophel supported ambitious Absalom, in his rebellion against King David his father. When asked to give counsel about the way forward, Ahithophel suggested that he should be allowed to lead an elite force made up of the best fighting men in Israel to confront David while he was still weak and discouraged.

The plan was to kill David and bring back all his loyal troops. Ahithophel’s counsel was countered by Hushai, David’s friend, who had infiltrated Absalom’s camp on David’s instruction. Hushai’s counsel was deemed better than that of Ahithophel. When Ahithophel saw that Hushai’s counsel was adopted rather than his, he was unhappy and hanged himself.
Leaders with exaggerated sense of self-worth are arrogant and dangerous. Ahithophel was so wise in counsel that David prayed against his counsel more than Absalom’s conspiracy. He had become a tin-god and almost assumed leadership over the rebellious administration of Absalom.

Some successful people have this same exaggerated opinion about their importance. They cannot work under someone else or agree to take instructions from others. Remember, pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.
