7581 - Digging Ditches for the Lord

Today we will look at the importance of digging ditches

I would like to share with you some insight into a passage of scripture from 2 Kings chapter 3. It is not a very well known passage, but I would like to share how this passage has been an encouragement to me in my recent work here at SONlight.

At the time of these events in 2 Kings 3, about 845 BC, the nation of Israel was split into a northern kingdom of Israel, and a southern kingdom of Judah. The northern kingdom was notorious for their ungodly and wicked kings, while the southern kingdom of Judah had at least many good kings amongst the bad.

Now, in the northern kingdom of Judah, Jehoram, the son of the wicked king and queen Ahab and Jezebel, had become king, and at that time the king of Moab decided that since Ahab had died, he didn’t really feel like continuing his tribute payments. So he stopped.

Jehoram was not really pleased with this rebellion from this subject nation so he went to the king of Judah, Jehoshaphat, and requested him to go with him to fight against Moab.
