Acts 12:23

Acts 12:23…”Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.” Many leaders, celebrities, and sports stars claim and receive Divine honors, but it was far more horrible impiety in Herod, who knew the word and character of God. For him to accept such idolatrous honors without rebuking the blasphemy was unacceptable. God is very jealous for his own honor, so let Herod be an example for us not to follow in this case.
