In today’s QT, Josiah becomes king, and despite his father having been such a terrible king, he did what was right in the eye of the LORD. I think it shows that each person is ultimately responsible their own faith and their own relationship with God. One might have had the most faithful parents, or had the least faithful parents, but even though that one person’s faith is affected by their parents, in the end, it’s ultimately between that one person and God.
When the Book of the Law was found and read to Josiah, he tore his robes, in verse 11. I like this verse because it shows that the power of the Word to reveal, heal, repent, and life. There is no other way to God except through the Word of the LORD, Jesus Christ.
