I just finished reading the Old Testament. One of the things that hits you clearly as you read through the history of God’s chosen is that most of the kings in their history were not interested in being godly. They served themselves. When he became King, Hezekiah was different. He was committed to restoring the people’s love and commitment to their God. One way he did that was to get the fragments that existed of the writings and add the oral tradition of Solomon’s wisdom and have it written down and spread among all the people. That is where these next few chapters of Proverbs came from. Our culture is losing the influence of the knowledge and wisdom of God’s truth. As representatives of our heavenly King it is incumbent upon us as it was to King Hezekiah to preserve His Word in our world. Preserve His Word in how you live and in what you say. Today, let the people you encounter see His truth in your life.
“Now, O Lord GOD, You are God, and Your words are truth…” 2 Samuel 7:28a NASB
