Chronological Bible: May 19, United in praise or clashing in angst?
- 2 Chronicles 5:1-7:22
- 2 Chronicles 8:1-9:31
“and it was the duty of the trumpeters and singers to make themselves heard in unison in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord…” –2 Chronicles 5:13, ESV
Unison. Strife and frustration creep around every corner. The opportunity to stir up angst and discontent in self and others crouches at the door, awaiting a willing or weary heart to create a battle that need not be fought. And these clashing battles stand in the way of others seeing the glory of God. When bickering overshadows gratitude, the glimmering gospel is blocked by the clanging iron swords wielded by the people proclaiming eternal peace.
