A Choice to Make - April 27, 2023

Early in the reign of King Josiah he made a brave choice. 2 Kings 22:2 says, “He lived as his ancestor David had lived, and he did not stop doing what was right.” He flipped through his family scrapbook until he found an ancestor worthy of emulation. He found David and resolved, “I’m going to be like him.”

The principle? We can’t choose our parents, but we can choose our mentors. And since Josiah chose David, who had chosen God, things began to happen. Josiah broke up the idols. He broke down the altars. He was out to make a statement: “What my fathers taught, I don’t teach. What they embraced, I reject.” Josiah had found the God of David and made Him his own.

God has not left you on the sea of heredity. You have a choice in the path you take. Choose well.
