Mr. Nice Guy

2 Samuel 6:6-7 KJV …Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it…And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God. 

1 Samuel 15:22 KJV 

[22] to obey is better than sacrifice, 
Nice guys, they say, finish last. Unfortunately, this may be true for even Christians. Being a good Christian is not necessarily being ‘nice’ all the time, it is all about obeying God even when the instruction seem senseless. God does not call us to be ‘good’ people as much as He calls us to be holy. Actions which may seem good, may have grave repercussions. “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” (Saint Bernard of Clairvaux).
