hannahbrencherI don't want to act like it wasn't grueling to read 1 & 2 Kings. Because it was. So many kings and stories that make you like what-the-heck? But I'm not skipping, skimming or jumping ahead. At one point, King Joash comes in to repair the temple Solomon had built. The text says it was dilapidated and Joash led the people to prioritize repairing the temple. I think about how our bodies are commonly referred to as temples and how inside and outside of us, we are in need of repairs. We need to prioritize those repairs- the big and the little ones. The damage stacks up and gets nearly too big to fix if we ignore it. What are some things in your life you need to repair? What's stopping you?
- abbbbiedearLaziness. Grad school isn't creeping to a close anymore-the semester is half way over and graduation is only 8 weeks away. My laziness has caught up with me. Evaluating hard core today how to work hard at whatever I do like I believe it's only for God and not applause from people, and how that means I should be giving it my all!
- lkhanson6A good word here. And a reminder I needed this morning, don't let the damage stack up. Let's be bold and trust the Throne for the healing of our temples, inside and out.
- charjosephsSuch a good word! Thanks for putting in in everyday context so it's understandable 💕
- janbycExactly! Interesting that the people actually allowed Solomon's amazing Temple to become delapidated ! Their priorities changed for the worst . The Temple was supposed to be the center of the Jewish faith's life. Great parallel with the body as a temple!
- sarraherringLove this. Reading 1 kings too :)
- kevmarksSo solid!
- marviadavidsonI remember reading those books and man oh man we're them some hardheaded people kind of reminds me of myself and the world we live in. So bent on doing our own thing at the expense of what's most precious - faith and identity on the One ☝️😭😳
- mncokerWhat Bible were you using today in your 1 kings study on your video
