Remember the Ancient Landmarks

2 Kgs. 22:1-3; Prov. 22:28

Josiah began his reign in Judah when he was only eight years old. Both Manasseh and Amon, his grandfather and father respectively did evil in the sight of God. They failed to walk in all the ways of David, their progenitor. However, Josiah was said to have done what was right in the sight of God and “he walked in all the ways of David his father, and he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left” The enviable relationship David had with God and his excellent performance in office as a King over Israel had become the yardsticks for measuring the conduct and performance of subsequent monarchs in Israel. Josiah, though very young, remembered the ancient landmarks established by David and took cues from them.  We are enjoined to remember the ancient spiritual landmarks and stick to them. It is only then we can pattern our conduct and performance after those approved standards.

Point of Emphasis:   The ancient spiritual landmarks will help us to remain attuned with God and win His approval.

Prayer Point:             Lord, help me to embrace and retain the ancient spiritual
