Elisha, the Rude Children, and the Bears

This story shows that God sees our attitude toward His servants as our attitude toward Himself.

And he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city and mocked him and said unto him, “Go up, you bald head; go up, you bald head.”

And he turned back and looked on them and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood and tore forty and two children of them.

And he went from there to mount Carmel and from there he returned to Samaria.

(2 Kings 2:23-25)
