Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the Lord his God. -2 Chronicles 27:6
Jotham’s father and grandfather were both kings and men who followed the Lord. Yet these reasons are not listed as sufficient explanation for his success. Jotham grew powerful becuase he walked faithfully before the Lord.
We often think those with godly parents are at a greater advantage. In some ways this is true, but a godly parent is no substitute for personally living for God. Only when we as individuals follow the Lord on a daily basis is our faith truly our own faith.
Today, do not excuse your level of spirituality on your parents or other influences, whether good or bad. Take responsibility for how you live. Serve the Lord faithfully today.
