The scripture for today is 2 Chronicles 5:3 (KJV).
“Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month”.
The Chronicles are like the newspapers or radio or TV news. They are telling the story of what was happening. How do you think our news today would be told? One group is arguing with another. Perhaps they are calling each other names which aren’t so nice. Some are even physically attacking others. Do you think God is happy with that?
God must be shedding tears about now. I remember when my son was young, his Sunday school teacher told them to memorize one verse for the next week. Of course, he chose “Jesus wept”. At the time I was really upset with him. In looking ack, though, this had more impart than you can imagine. Jesus loves us enough to weep for us because He cares.
Dear God, Help me keep focused on worshipping You. Let us never forget your caring for each of us.
