what do you think?

i hate him.

The passage I read today in 1 Kings 22 was pretty interesting.
And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the Lord, Micaiah the son of Imlah, but I hate him, for he never prophesies good concerning me, but evil.” And Jehoshaphat said, “Let not the king say so.” (Verse 8)
This probably shouldn't make me laugh, but it kinda does. In my head, the king of Israel (Ahab) sounds incredibly whiney. He's gathered all of these prophets. Like 400 of them, and they're all before the two kings, saying, "oh, yes! Go to war! You will win!" and Jehoshaphat (king of Judah) is like, "ummm, are there any prophets of like, the God that we base our whole culture on?" And Ahab is like, "aw, man! there's one, but he always shoots me down when i have these ideas. i haaaaaaaaaate him." (as an aside, that just made me think of this video...HAHA)

it made me think of the people in my life that i can't stand sometimes because they tell the truth about my situations back to me, and sometimes i don't really want to hear it.

who is that person in your life? why won't you listen? and why does the truth hurt so much sometimes?
