The Great Harm That Is Done By Feeling Sorry For Someone, Part 2

(Excerpt)

If Elijah really wanted to die, why did he complain that Godís enemies wanted him dead? Was it that Elijah wanted to die, or that Elijah wanted to die if he could not live out his life in circumstances he found agreeable? I think Elijah only wanted to die because Godís plan for him was contrary to what he wanted for his life. Could it be that Elijah was shocked to discover that he had not become a popular hero after opposing King Ahab and standing against the prophets of Baal? Had he become disillusioned when Jezebel did not cower at the mention of his name, but instead issued a threat that caught him completely by surprise and frightened him? Is he now discouraged and despondent because rather than being thought by others that he is a hero he is instead a fugitive? This is the ev-idence of the prophetís pride. For if he had been humble he would have been unconcerned about his reputation, about the esteem with which he was held by others.
