In Case You Missed It -- 2 Chronicles 27-28, Psalm 68

Sometimes it is good when others say little about us. 2 Chronicles 27 has few words to offer on the life of Jotham, King of Judah. 2 Chronicles 27:6 gives a fit summary of his life: “Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the Lord his God.” After these words, we are not told about his moral failures, rejecting God’s prophets, or worshiping gods of the foreign nations. May we live such simple and God-honoring lives that very little else needs to be said about us when we have passed than “she loved God and neighbor, proclaimed the Gospel, and died.”
