SAA Notes

God grant every one of His servants an Ebed-Melech as a friend. Pray for those who preach and teach God’s Word.

SJA Notes

* God of joy and peace, please teach us from Your word today.

“If you will surrender to the officials of the king of Babylon, then your life shall be spared, …”

It must have been hard for Zedekiah the king at this time. Managing a kingdom besieged, dealing with nobles playing politics, maybe even trying to do what was right for the people.

God’s word to Zedekiah at this time was a hard word.

SURRENDER!

There was wisdom in that path for the king, it would go better for him if he surrendered.

We can make the same mistake as the king, who ignored God’s word (as we shall see).

God calls us to be meek, humble, other-centred, kind, patient. He calls on us to be faithful and true as He is, steadfast in our love as His love shows, to be gentle and self-controlled as we see Jesus was.

He calls us to WISDOM.

Are we choosing God’s call to wisdom today and not that of the world?

Choose wisdom!

* Father God,

Please show us Your word today, the wisdom You would have us heed.

Mark us as a faithful people Lord, showing Your faithfulness in our lives to those around us.

Amen.
