Jehoshaphat Reigns in Righteousness
Today I read 2 Chronicles 17 which tells of the next king of Judah, Jehoshaphat. I have always loved that name. It is so funny to me. Anyway, this entire chapter is about Jehoshaphat's preparations for war and how he intended to guard himself against the kingdom of Israel. It does however also tell us that he was righteous in the sight of God and did not go after Baalim and other false gods. It can be quite monotonous at times to read so much and get so little spiritual fulfillment out of the Old Testament. But we have it all for a reason, not the least of which is a good lesson for what we can learn and how we can avoid pitfalls others have made in the past. Until tomorrow.
