The Good And The Bad

September 22, 2013

Recently, I began studying the kings of the Old Testament with some friends. I noticed on the chart that we were using that a few of the leaders of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah are labeled good, but most of them are labeled bad, mostly bad, extra bad, and the worst.

King David is described as a good king who “followed [God] with all his heart” (1 Kings 14:8) and is an example to follow (3:14; 11:38). The bad kings are noted for their willful rejection of God and for leading their subjects into idolatry. King Jeroboam, the first king to rule Israel after the kingdom was divided, has the legacy of being remembered as one of the worst kings—“who sinned and who made Israel sin” (14:16). Because of his bad example, many kings who came after him are compared to him and are described as being as evil as he was (16:2,19,26,31; 22:52).

Each of us has a unique sphere of influence, and that influence can be used for evil or for good. An unfettered faithfulness to God is a light that will shine brightly and leave a legacy of good.

It’s our privilege to bring glory to the Lord. May others see His light shining through us and be drawn to His goodness.

Oh, make me, Lord, so much like Thee,
My life controlled by power divine,
That I a shining light may be
From which Thy grace may ever shine. —Robertson
The smallest light still shines in the darkest night.

Read: 1 Kings 14:7-16

My servant David . . . followed Me with all his heart. —1 Kings 14:8
Bible in a Year:
Ecclesiastes 10-12; Galatians 1

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, or National Guardsman
Feel alone or forgotten.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Psalm 130:7 & 8

Greetings! No, unfortunately I worked for they guy to whom all ten points applied. And yes, he was totally miserable.

But at least he wasn’t selfish. He freely shared so everyone around him was likewise.

I am so sorry you had to work with someone like that. I’ve known a few, but never had to work with one.

That kind of sharing I can pass on.

Hi Everybody!
(((((HUGS))))

My A/C is back (HUZZAHHH!)

It would seem that the landscaper cut the line to my unit (just mine and only mine) and all the freon fell out.

Welcome to the Canteen, Cicero....that was my very first thought, and it got stronger as I read the list.

The only difference I see is he doesn’t seem miserable. He seems to enjoy spreading the misery.

A Blessed Lord’s Day to you and yours.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.
