09 Aug Matthew 14:3-4

3 For when Herod had John arrested, he bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip. 4 For John had been saying to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.”

Why did Herod have John arrested? What was John saying about Herod that caused him to be targeted for imprisonment? What is your response when someone points out your sin or shortcomings? Are you like Herod and try to silence the accuser or do you heed the counsel of others and repent from your wrong doings?
