- 2 Chronicles 26:1-23
Uzziah, Uzziah, Uzziah. He stepped ahead of the priests, ahead of the order of God, and walked into the temple to burn incense, a completely inappropriate action. Commentators guess he may have been making a statement of position similar to the Canaanites’ “semidivine priest-king.” It wasn’t jealousy or silliness. The pride of Uzziah resulted in being smote with leprosy. If the commentators are correct, his mixing of God’s structure with Canaanite custom led him nowhere good.
Are you mixing the godly with the earthly? It can only result in metaphorical or literal illness and disease that will only lead to death. Be careful to follow where God has called. A little bit of this and a little bit of that will lead you down a road where you do not want to be! Do not add to it else you risk far more than the risk is worth.
