2 Kings 22-25 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Josiah loved God and revered His Word. His reforms are truly amazing. But what is even more astonishing is the level of ungodliness in the kingdom. 2 Kings 23 reads like a horror story. What was done to/in the temple was horrifying, and the fact that other kings had tolerated the pagan shrines and altars can hardly be believed. It’s no wonder God finally had enough! One good king could do a lot, but he couldn’t make up for a people and leadership that continually turned away from God. It’s a good reminder for us that God is not only gracious, he is holy too, and sometimes He cries “Enough!”
