Ezra’s summary of King Asa and the summary of King Asa by the author of 1 Kings (possibly Jeremiah?) are vastly different. Not that they disagree. They just describe different parts of King Asa’s life. And I’m not going to lie, this particularly summary didn’t do much for me. It didn’t spark any great inspiration or lead me to a revelation, but it did make me go back and refresh my memory about what we read about King Asa in 1 Kings. So, that’s something. It also made me remember that Asa was considered a good king. He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, and he was Solomon’s grandson. He kept King David’s kingdom running the way it was supposed to run – fully devoted and dependent on God. And that’s kind of how I’m feeling this morning as well.
