Good morning everyone.
In finishing up 2 Kings today, we just blew through roughly 400 years in
both the Kings books. That was a lot of names, dates, mothers, “doing evil in the eyes of the Lord”‘s, setting up and tearing down Asherah poles. Yet through it all, there were glimpses of hope in kings, people, and the presence of God. Joshiah is a bright spot in the road. While some kings reigned for a few months or a year, Josiah had the longest at 69 years. Way to go Joe! He is a great example for us to look to as a radical for the Lord.
2 Kings 14:25 Did you see the prophet Jonah made an appearance? This is the same one who heads to Nineveh to preach repentance and has a book named after himself.
