Hezekiah was human: He prayed, but he also got proud. Confronted by enemies - his enemies the Assyrians and our common enemy, Death - Hezekiah saw his deep need for God, and humbled himself before the Lord. But entertaining foreign dignitaries he couldn't resist the urge to show off. He had prospered, he had done well for his subjects, but he had forgotten that all of those blessings were gifts from the King of Kings. We'll hear that story today. We have records of Hezekiah's rule in 2 Chronicles as well as 2 Kings, and Jim will examine both as we listen.
