II Chronicles 22:4 Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellers after the death of his father to his destruction.
Ahaziah has some bad counsellors. He was doing wrong. He was following the advice of his counsellors. The wrong they led him to do was to his destruction. It is so easy to get caught up in things that you shouldn’t. It is so easy to follow what people say without thinking for yourself.
I have been so guilty of this. Men I respected said to do certain things. They were foolish things. They caused destruction, trouble, hurt. I followed blindly. I thought that they were great men of God and must be right. I should have taken the time to think, to pray, to figure things out.
Be careful. Don’t just do what someone tells you to do. It just might be something that brings more hurt than it does good!
