In today’s study, we will begin to look at the reign of King Joash. Joash was the first in a sequence of three kings (followed by Amaziah and Uzziah) whose reigns began on a relatively positive note, but all ended in failure or public disgrace, because they rejected godly counsel. Their failures should motivate us to hold fast to the things of the Lord and to purpose in our hearts to finish well. Please open your Bible to Second Chronicles chapter twenty-three, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
