Today, we read one chapter in the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians and four chapters in second Chronicles.
1 Corinthians 13, the Greatest Gift, the most quoted passages in the Bible after John 3:16, and for good reasons: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” My Christianity teacher in public school in Sweden a long time ago also quoted nearly every class: “ When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” He did it in Swedish of course. When I became a believer at the age of 31 I finally understood what he was trying to convey.
2 Chronicles 21. The reign of Jehoram in Judah.
2 Chronicles 22. The reigns of Ahaziah and Athaliah in Judah.
2 Chronicles 23. Joash was crowned king of Judah and Athaliah was slain.
2 Chronicles 24. Joash repaired the Temple but then committed apostasy and was finally executed.
