Joash, Josiah, and Jehoshaphat

Joash, Josiah and Jehoshaphat shared a conviction that obedience to one God was the key to good fortune, happiness, health, and power. Each one of these three kings strived to put their kingdoms in good order — to live by the laws of God. Each one faced fierce challenges to their trust in God and to their humility as powerful kings. They were not always successful, but they learned invaluable lessons along the way — as we all can in our own lives.
