2 Kings 5:20
"Gehazi the attendant of Elisha the man of the true God said to himself: 'Here my master has spared this Syrian Naaman by not accepting from him what he brought. As surely as Jehovah is living, I will run after him and take something from him.'"
We know that Gehazi's greed and covetousness were wrong, but at 2 Kings 5:20 we see how he reasoned with and convinced himself that it was only right to ask for this payment. This account highlights the danger of rationalizing, minimizing or making excuses. Our actions should fit in line with Jehovah's thinking, not our personal thinking that we have bent to fit our needs.
