2 Chronicles 21:20  Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. No one was sorry when he died. They buried him in the City of David, but not in the royal cemetery. (NLT)

Every story has a backstory. Every leader has a formative past. Jehoram became king because he was the oldest son of the deceased king. He did just about everything wrong a king could do. He reigned eight years, died of horrendous disease, and no one was sorry when he was gone. Don’t be that guy.

No matter who you are, no matter your status, no matter your responsibilities and opportunities, you can leave the world better than you found it. Enrich the lives of others with positive, focused attention. Live generously. Extravagantly encourage others. Profusely sing other people’s praises. Speak the truth in love. 

Give more than you receive. Rebuild broken lives. Restore those who are worn out. Rethink ideas that keep people in bondage. Reflect God’s mercy and grace. Refresh others with the peace of his presence. 

Today is an opportunity to practice positive impact. Make up your mind to be the best encounter everyone who sees you today has all day long. Serve with a smile. Laugh easily. Sing happy songs. Live as if you know the secret to the universe and bear the key opening all of glory to anyone who desires the best there can be. 

Turn Galatians 2:20 into reality. Make Colossians 2:27 come alive. Express the beauty of Philippians 1:21. 

Don’t merely tell stories; live them. Turn tragedies into triumphs. Lead others to the place where every ending is happy. Lead them to Jesus.

I will practice positive impact.

Our Father, saturate our lives with your grace, mercy, and peace. May your love overflow into the lives of everyone we meet today. May your hand of healing and restoration touch broken lives. Use us in whatever manner you see fit to beautify your world. Amen.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
