2 Chronicles 33-34, Psalm 27, Mark 6
So what was I doing at 8 years old? I wasn’t running a kingdom . . . nor by the time of 18 was I well on my way to casting all the idols out of the kingdom and rebuilding the temple. I guess I got a slow start! I know this much though, in reading todays scriptures . . . the land of Israel had turned her back on God. But upon finding the Book of Law as they were rebuilding the House of the Lord the King, upon reading it, immediately mourned! Israel had forgotten herself, but upon reading the word of God she was put right. Same goes for us I think. Only by reading of God’s word do we learn more about His nature and loving way. By my posting calendar one can tell that I have not been the best at keeping up with my Soap; but today’s Old Testament passage alone speaks to the importance of it. Lord I pray that I understand all the more how important it is to read Your Word daily!
