2 Chronicles 1 - Day 606
2 Chronicles 1 - Day 606 (link to reading)
Scripture: 2 Chronicles 1:7
Summary (gotquestions.org): The Book of 2 Chronicles records the history of the Southern Kingdom of Judah, from the reign of Solomon to the conclusion of the Babylonian exile. The decline of Judah is disappointing, but emphasis is given to the spiritual reformers who zealously seek to turn the people back to God. Little is said about the bad kings or of the failures of good kings; only goodness is stressed. Since 2 Chronicles takes a priestly perspective, the Northern Kingdom of Israel is rarely mentioned because of her false worship and refusal to acknowledge the Temple of Jerusalem. Second Chronicles concludes with the final destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple...The reader of the Chronicles is invited to evaluate each generation from the past and discern why each was blessed for their obedience or punished for their wickedness. But we are also to compare the plight of these generations to our own, both corporately and individually.
Application: God asked Solomon, "What do you want?" and he asked for wisdom. However, wisdom wasn't enough to dissuade Solomon from wandering away from God and chasing after idols. Huh.
Prayer: Lord, please give me heart for You. Increase my desire to know, serve, and represent You more...
