TAKE TIME: March 16-21, 2015 Assignment

Introduction:  The chronicle of the southern kingdom of Judah continues. This week we will read of the reign of good king Jehoshaphat who was then followed by his son, Jehoram, who married into the wicked family of Ahab, the ruler of the northern kingdom of Israel. This then led to the reign of the evil king Ahaziah whose mother, Athaliah, daughter of Ahab and possibly Jezebel, ruled the kingdom of Judah for 6 years following the death of her son thus leading the nation into a few years when there was no descendant of David on the throne.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action
Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, seemed to think himself a peacemaker. He exhibited this quality by befriending the other Jewish king, Ahab, of the rival country of Israel. The problem is that light cannot have fellowship with darkness and their joint ventures were an unequal yoke between a believer and an unbeliever. Let us be careful in our dealings with our non-believing friends and neighbors that in our attempts at living out a Godly testimony we not become ensnared in an unequal yoke with them (a business partnership, a marriage, etc.). It is one thing to be friends with an unbeliever. It is quite another to be partners with one!


  1. I think more than searching the word, the last part is important. Acting on it. Have a wonderful week.

  2. First time here. Thanks for providing us a guide in our reading.It's a huge help. :)


Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
