Today’s reading II Kings 10-13
II Kings 12:9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in the lid of it, and set it beside the altar, on the right side as one cometh into the house of the LORD: and the priests that kept the door put therein all the money that was brought into the house of the LORD.
The men of God had allowed the house of God to fall into disrepair! They were not concerned about what they should have been concerned about! The priests seemed to be taking money that was meant for repairs for themselves.
God’s people and especially God’s leaders should have been very concerned about putting the house of God in order. They had taken a less than committed step towards the house of God.
I wonder how much we today put God and His purposes and programs first in our lives. How much do we seek first Him and His kingdom? Do we consider His house more than we do our house?
