Bible in 365: Day 184
2 Kings 9-11
A day of cleansing:
It is good to see the nation of Israel finally reject Baal worship. Jehu, through a little deception, kills all of the servants of Baal and destroys the temple of Baal.
The nation of Judah is also cleansed as Athaliah (another supporter of Baal worship) is put to death. It seems both nations are off to a fresh start. This is a time to get their priorities straight and worship the one true God.
Is there anything that needs to be cleansed from your life? What insignificant things have taken over and become priorities? Is it time to get rid of those and strip your life down to what is truly important?
