21The king commanded all the people, “Keep the passover to the Lord your God as prescribed in this book of the covenant.” 22No such passover had been kept since the days of the judges who judged Israel, or during all the days of the kings of Israel or of the kings of Judah; 23but in the eighteenth year of King Josiah this passover was kept to the Lord in Jerusalem. 24Moreover Josiah put away the mediums, wizards, teraphim, idols, and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, so that he established the words of the law that were written in the book that the priest Hilkiah had found in the house of the Lord. 25Before him there was no king like him, who turned to the Lord with all his heart, with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; nor did any like him arise after him. (2 Kings 23:21-25, NRSV)
Josiah was a king after God’s own heart, one who walked in the steps of David and wanted to please God.
What do we do to please God?
Do we read our Bibles every morning and pray?
Do we do something else for God?
Is there something we should be doing for God?
How can we better align our lives with what God had planned for us?
