He let them down when he unflinchingly announced that he would be leaving. He betrayed them saying that he’s leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to seek fame in Miami. He was the best; the very best! MVP for two consecutive years, LeBron’s followers thought he could do no wrong. ..until he announced his decision. The best suddenly became the worst. There are thousands of discouraged, angry, disillusioned, disappointed, disgusted ex-fans of the king. He’s not their king any more. Bonfires are burning anything and everything with LeBron on it. Free beer was offered for anyone who would shred their LeBron objects.
With so much publicity, speculation, press coverage and hype in the past few weeks surrounding king James’ decision, and especially since his announcement, I thought about the REAL KING: Jesus. All through the Bible there are declarations that He alone is King. The Psalmist referred to His eternal nature: “The LORD is King forever and ever” (Psalm 10:16) He will not leave us. He will not betray us. He will always be the very best. He will never make a decision that will turn His followers against Him, and we can PRAISE HIM FOR THAT!
