The spared and spoiled child grows up to bring shame and blame on his parents. He squanders his father’s inheritance and puts his own mother out of the family home in her old age to fend for herself. Make no mistake, God sees such a one and holds him accountable for breaking the commandment to honor his father and mother.

Both we and creation experience an inner groaning, as in the pains of childbirth, awaiting the fulfillment of our redemption. In these last days, as sin and suffering in this world increase, so does our longing for that which the Spirit within us promises. There is coming a Day when all suffering and pain will end. We will receive resurrection bodies like Jesus and we will dwell with Him forevermore. So, may the groaning of your body remind you of this hope.

Thus began the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The writer of 2 Chronicles must have been living during the time of the two Jewish kingdoms, so his words had a historic meaning. Yet, they also have a prophetic meaning because Israel is still in rebellion against the Son of David to this day. However, there is coming a Day when not only Israel’s rebellion will end, but the rebellion of humanity will end. On that Day, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Phil. 2:10).

Have you ever noticed how quickly a new mother forgets her labor as she holds her infant in her arms? So shall we forget our present troubles when we see Christ at His return.
