Laughing at Hezekiah (the Lesson)

"At the beginning of the Chronicles account of Hezekiah we read: “And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done” (2 Chronicles 29:2).
And after Hezekiah instituted many of his reforms, we read more about his godly character:
Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God. And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with
all his heart. So he prospered. (2 Chronicles 31:20–21)
The lesson? If we want to impact the world around us, God’s people first need to seek God and be obedient to His Word. Sadly, many Christians and Christian leaders today exalt man’s word by taking man’s religion of evolution and millions of years (an attempt to explain life without God) and adding it to God’s infallible Word. This is in reality no different from the efforts by the people of Judah and Israel to adopt the pagan religion of their age and mix it with what God had instructed.

Then later we find out about the negative response: So the runners passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh, as far as Zebulun; but they laughed at them and mocked them” (2 Chronicles 30:10).
As Hezekiah was calling on people to “return to the Lord” (2 Chronicles 30:9), many scoffed.
This is a reminder to anyone who shares the Word faithfully that there will be scoffers." AIG
