Our favorite verse in 1 Chronicles Chapter 3 is: 

Solomon’s son was Rehoboam, Abijah his son, Asa his son, Jehoshaphat his son  ( 1 Chronicles 3:10 NIV)

(Share your list and comments)
  • Jehoshaphat. – The main mistake he made was to make an alliance with Ahab. This relationship the evil practices of Jehoshaphat, king of Israel, was severely rebuked by the prophet Jehu. But, after all,  Jehoshaphat was a good king, he made ​​military reforms, political, judicial and religious changes in Judah. He strengthened the fortifications; put judges in the different cities and cared for them to seek justice with righteousness. Above all, the biblical text indicates that Jehoshaphat sought God as David dad and he walked in God’s commandments.
  • Hezekiah. – King Hezekiah was one of the great kings of Judah. He was a great manager, and also a spiritual reformer and a leader whose prayers were miraculously answered numerous times. Hezekiah did not surrender to Sennacherib and cried to God for deliverance, that night the Angel of the Lord killed 185,000 soldiers. He had 39 when he reached the top of his successes. Powerful, immensely wealthy, loved by his people, respected by the world and blessed by God, but did not accept the message from the Lord to prepare everything because he was to die.
  • Josiah. – The Bible describes Josiah as a man transformed by God, not only sought God and was sensitive to hear the word of God, but obeyed what He said. The strength of Josiah’s life was to be a model in his ​​own life. His integrity and loyalty to God was known to all the the people. Josiah teaches us that at all times one should seek God with all our heart, with all our soul and with all your strength.


    Dear God, our creator and sustainer, we also want to trust our lives in your hands. We want to b molded by you and become castings and vessels of honor. For Jesus, Amen.
