The Lessons We Learn From the Scriptures
Today I read 2 Chronicles 27 which tells the very short story of king Jotham. All we can gather from this chapter is that Jotham was righteous and he made war, quite successfully, with his enemies. It is interesting that the wicked kings seem to get talked about much more than the righteous ones in the Old Testament. I wonder if this is because we have numerous examples of doing that which is righteous because of Jesus Himself and the Book of Mormon. Or because we have more to learn from an unrighteous king by way of what NOT to do? What ever the reason, it is very effective, it doesn't pay to be wicked, something bad always seems to happen to you in the end. Until tomorrow.
