September 3: Righteousness

2 Chronicles 20:31-33

So Jehoshaphat was king over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. And he walked in the way of his father Asa, and did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord. Nevertheless the high places were not taken away, for as yet the people had not directed their hearts to the God of their fathers.

Jehoshaphat did much good for the people and seemed to live a holy life.  BUT because he didn’t serve God with a whole heart he left the high places of idolatry.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL’S LEADERS TO FOLLOW GOD WITH THEIR WHOLE HEARTS.
