Monday September 13, 2021 “Do What is Right”

2 Kings 18:1-3 “Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea the son of Elah, king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz, king of Judah, began to reign. He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Abi[a] the daughter of Zechariah. And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done.”

When we read family trees, we learn about the good, the bad and the in between. Hezekiah had both good and bad in his family as we all do. We cannot blame those family members for the dysfunction in our lives or give credit to some of our success in life.

The same is true of a nation. We have had some of the best and the not so good leaders through the history of America. Pray that all of those who think they are privileged or “cursed” because of their family members would allow the Lord to direct them do what is right in His sight and not to do what they think a parent or ancestor would do that would bring personal gain or popularity.
