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. (CSB)

Be that guy, the guy who does the right thing the right way at the right time for the right reason. The guy who does what’s right no matter what those who came before him did. The guy who does what’s right no matter what others may do after him. 

Josiah’s life and reign also teach us another important lesson: Don’t get cocky, Kid. Verses 28-30 give us the details. He stepped into the path of two warring factions. It cost him his life. Confrontation is sometimes necessary. And sometimes, it will get you killed. Know when to stick your nose into other people’s hostilities and also when not to.

Two lessons: 

1. Do the right thing, always.
2. Confront in a manner that makes things better or not at all.

I will do the right thing in all things at all times as I follow God’s leadership step by step.

Our Father, my idea of what the right thing to do is in any given situation may lack clarity and/or focus. Bless me with clarity. Give me wisdom in knowing when to step in and when to bow out. Give me the grace to keep from making things worse. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
