Right Up Until Things Went Bad
2 Kings continues the story of the history of Israel right up until the exile to Babylon. There were good kings and bad kings, but nothing could undo the centuries of Israel turning their hearts after other things besides their God.
We can learn a lot to apply to our lives today by reading the stories of 2 Kings. We too are just as prone to turning away from God. We would be wise to read and study this book to keep our hearts pure before the Lord.
