The Book that Grieved Josiah

2 Kings 22:1–23:32

Josiah’s response to the reading of Deuteronomy illustrates how we should respond when we hear or read God’s Word. The Scriptures should regularly call into question our assumptions and deeds, provoking us to repent for our faithlessness and to go forward in obedience. If we are never moved to change when reading the Bible, then let us ask ourselves if we have understood it, for God’s Word must always bring reformation when it is rightly comprehended.
