II Chronicles 24:1-18
King Joash was young, parentless and in a very important role. He was to rule the kingdom of Judah.
Jehoiada, the priest and uncle of King Joash stepped in to become mentor, counsellor and coworker to the young man.
As a result of this relationship Joash was nurtured and reigned successful with his uncle by his side.
Jehoiada’s guidance, example and wisdom influenced Joash heavily. He was held accountable by his uncle. Sadly, when Jehoiada died Joash quit following God. He turned to idols instead.
Are you in the position to strengthen someone in the ways of our Lord? If so, don’t take the opportunity lightly. The results could be huge.
