Day 180

Today’s Reading – 1 Kings 22 and 2 Chronicles 18
The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, 
“Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. 
Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.”

I King 22:13

crowd

Ever been tempted to go along with the crowd?

What harm could there be? After all these others were also prophets.

Micaiah was not like the others – He was not going to tell the king what he wanted to hear, but rather he would tell the king what God has declared.

(Elijah had predicted King Ahab’s death and now was the time for God to make good on His prediction 1 King 21:19)

It is much easier to tell a friend or colleague what they want to hear, but we who follow Jesus are called to light in the world.

Take a stand for what you believe and speak the truth – the truth of God.

Tomorrow’s Reading – 2 Chronicles Chapters 19-23

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
