2 Chronicles 27 – Be Intentional


2 Chronicles 27If I could pick one piece of advice I heard the most this summer it would be this: Be Intentional.

This chapter is about a man whose success came from being intentional. Reigning while his leprous father was still alive, King Jotham had a challenging job. Although, because of his father’s shadow, he wasn’t the greatest king in Judah’s history, he was still considered a good king. He added on to the temple, strengthened the city walls, and made the kingdom of Assyria pay them tribute for three years! What was the source of Jotham’s strength?

So Jotham became mighty, because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.
2 Chronicles 27:6

Read the chapter here!

Jotham was intentional. He made sure that everything he did was in line with what God wanted. We can’t be sure exactly how he decided, but we do know that Jotham made an effort to do things God’s way.

How can you be intentional as you live from day to day? Just stop and think about it. I just did. I’ll be changing the way I begin my shift at my job here at college. What will you do to be intentional about living for Christ alone?
