After David, Josiah is the best king!
2 Kings 22:2
He did right in the sight of the LORD and walked in all the way of his father David, nor did he turn aside to the right or to the left.
2 Kings 22:19-20
Because your heart was tender… your eyes will not see all the evil which I will bring on this place.
2 Kings 23:25
Before him [Josiah] there was no king like him who turned to the LORD with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; nor did any like him arise after him.
What would you do if you were Josiah? Josiah began life with a tender heart for God. He obeyed God and worked for God. God told good king Josiah that all his work for God would not change his nation. I am amazed that even though he knew all his work would be lost, he still obeyed God. He did not harden his heart.
Josiah is an example of a godly man living in the last days. He did not give up or lose heart. He trusted God to do what was right for him. He knew that no matter what everyone else did, he must follow the Lord and live his life for God. He kept his eye on God and God's word and he did not turn to the left or right. He did not live his life for results; he lived his life to please God.
And that is how you have to live in the last days. Live for God.
For me to live is Christ.
