Topic: KINDS OF CHILDREN 2
Text: 2 Kings 2:23-25 KJV
23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you bald head; go up, you bald head!”
24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
Apart from the category of children who were born but were not tutored, another category are children who were nurtured, tutored, trained but rejected tutoring. Such children often were given adequate home trainings, disciplines and informal education but they choose to be wayward and irresponsible. Many of such children are seen within and around are societies and neighbourhoods. Often times they hold no regard for nobody, some of them even abscond from their homes to hang out with notorious friends, they engage in nefarious acts like gambling, partying, pick pocketing, stealing and they turned out to become street boys and girls. Their end certainly does not hold anything positive if they continued with such life style.
From our text above, some 42 children fit into this category, they were children from the city who mocked Elisha, these children must have given Elisha a prolonged moment of mocking as they were singing after him on the way. If it was Elijah that experienced this and cursed the children I would have no issue with it because Elijah was a prophet that takes no nonsense as he has often called down fire to consume different sets of armies just because their King said the armies should go and bring (let’s say arrest) Elijah from the mountain to the palace (2 Kings 1:9-10), Elijah also killed the 450 prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18). But Elisha was the man in question here and he had no prior record of him cursing people but for him to have cursed those 42 children such that two fear bears came from the bush and tear up all the children then they must have provoked his anger greatly.
Dearly beloved, never allow anything not even the devil or your society to turn your children into something else in your hands, don’t give up on them in your prayer, because prayer changes things. God bless you
* Father, my labour over my children will not be wasted
* Father, I will not lose my children to the devil and to their ungodly peers in Jesus Name
