Day 177

Today’s Reading – 1 Kings Chapter 16 and 2 Chronicles Chapter 17

The LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he followed the ways of his father David before him. He did not consult the Baals, but sought the God of his father and followed his commands rather than the practices of Israel.  2 Chronicles 17:3-4


Ever play the game what is missing?

Two seemingly identical pictures with small difference.

That is the story of the kings in the Old Testament.

Repeating images and stories of kings, but with one difference.

Some chose to follow the ways of God and to honor Him in all ways.

Some didn’t.

Some prospered and lived long lives – a type of “happily ever after.”

Some didn’t.

Which image are you repeating?

Whose image are you replicating in your life?


Tomorrow’s Reading – 1 Kings Chapter 17-19


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
