Chapter-a-Day 2 Chronicles 35

But Josiah was spoiling for a fight and wouldn’t listen to a thing Neco said…. 2 Chronicles 35:22 (MSG)

Just the other night, Wendy and I were talking about times in life when we dive headlong into foolish decisions. We can both look back on life’s journey and point to decisions, relationships, and actions that now make us scratch our heads and shake our heads with incredulity. In retrospect, it’s almost inconceivable how we strike out on our own with blinders on. No one can convince us we’re making a mistake. Our ears are deaf to wisdom.

I’d like to think that time and hard lessons have taught me to recognize when those I trust are providing me fair warning. I hope that I am more willing to realize when my appetites have me driving 90 m.p.h. down a dead end street.

In Josiah’s case, it cost him his life.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day 2 Chronicles 35”

  1. 16-19 Everything went without a hitch in the worship of God that day

    Worship doesn’t need to be perfect. We aren’t perfect people. But there is an interruption for me when things break down. There is a fine line b/w authentic worship and worship that is performed. My spirit sings a little louder when worship goes off without a hitch though.
