“Is everything all right?” Naaman asked the breathless Gehazi who had chased after Naaman and his entourage. Naaman was thinking faster than Gehazi was talking. His leprosy was gone, Elisha wouldn’t take any of the gifts he offered…Why is Elisha’s servant here?
Gehazi made up a story that involved asking for money and clothing. Naaman was more than willing to respond to Gehazi’s request. Immediately, Gehazi took his newly acquired treasure home and hid it. Then, back to Elisha… But Elisha asked where he was. He couldn’t tell Elisha what he did, so he lied. He couldn’t fool Elisha; and he ended up with what Naaman was cured of…leprosy.
