Now in those days the advice of Ahithophel was like that of one who inquires of God. 2 Samuel 16:23
When Ahithophel saw that his advice had not been followed, he saddled his donkey and set out for his house in his hometown. He put his house in order and then hanged himself. 2 Samuel 17:23
Now if you were to accuse Ahithophel of thinking he was always right, his answer would be, “Well yea, I am always right!” But Ahithophel’s problem wasn't that he was always right, his problem was that he was right about the wrong thing.
Jesus said something about our tendency to be accurate to the tenth about spices, yet all the while having neglected the more important matters – like justice, mercy, and faithfulness; That is Ahithophel thinking.
