1 Kings 22; 2 Chronicles 18; Matthew 2

I will change a bit in today’s post. Normally there is a focus Scripture to take us into a thought or perspective.

Today, let’s look at the “big picture.”

In all three chapters we see a theme of listening to God. What He has to say and or response to it. As we contrast our OT reading, we see disobedience and the results. In our NT reading we see obedience to God’s Word and the results.

At times, we may read something in the Bible and it causes a bit of emotional or mental discomfort. Why did God say I have to forgive? Why do I have to love my enemies. Why do I have to eat brussels sprouts? Oops, wrong arena. But I think you see the point.

When we read, it is best to listen and apply what God is saying. He knows what’s best for us, and He will take care of the rest. Read and apply. GOD Bless.
