I don’t know about you, but King Hezekiah just warms my heart. This chapter includes a lot of information, but you can read even more about his reign back in 2 Kings. Actually, compared to a lot of people, the Bible devotes a LOT of text to King Hezekiah. Yet, he’s not all that known,… Continue reading Bible studies for writers| 2 Chronicles 32

Have you ever joyfully paid your taxes? Not many people have, me included. But there were times when I was a reporter that seeing how tax money was being used brought me great joy, and I have been thankful for taxes during many a walk down public sidewalks. But a lot of people don’t see… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 31

King Hezekiah didn’t do everything right, but his devotion to the Lord shows how merciful God can be when we just talk to Him honestly. I feel like the modern day church could learn a great lesson or two from King Hezekiah. I’m not sure if it’s just me and my Twitter feed, but I’ve… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 30

Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 29

It’s hard for me to imagine how one goes from being the son of a king like Ahaz to such an upright and honorable king who not only does what is pleasing in the sight of the Lord, but he easily convinces all of Judah to follow in his footsteps. He got the Temple restored… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 29

Jotham seems to have been a fabulous ruler, yet his reign was summed up in an itty-bitty, five-paragraph-long chapter. Isn’t it funny how some people can do great big huge things and become known all over the planet, while others do the same things but barely get any recognition at all? Sometimes I compare myself… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 27

King Uzziah gives me all the feels, even the gross leprosy ones. I had a feeling he was going to be a good king right from the get-go when we learned that he reigned for more than 50 years. If you’ve been reading along with us so far, you’ll know that it was rare (and… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 26

Why on earth did King Amaziah decide to bring back Edomite idols and actually worship them is beyond me, but I do see how people can start sliding away from God and never quite gain enough traction to stop the fall. Sometimes, it just seems too painful to put your leg out and grab some… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 25

What makes people who know God turn away from God? Unfortunately, sometimes it is the result of lack of leadership. I am reminded of my own high school youth group leaders. Man, they were fantastic. They were a young couple who later married and were just on fire for Jesus. They shepherded us sheep for… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 24

Scene 23. Take 2. Annnnd … action! I love this story so much. I find it ironic that it’s so action-packed and full of goodies, yet it’s really not a story we ever hear about in terms of Christian history. I’m betting many a screenplay have been loosely based on the events that took place,… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 23

I love this story so much. I remember it from 2 Kings, and I wished then what I wish now - that it was bigger and longer and full of more details. But, alas, it is not, and we just have to use our imaginations about what happened during those years young King Joash was… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 2 Chronicles 22
