II Kings 12:2 And Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him. 3 But the high places were not taken away: the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places.
Jehoash is doing what the priest Jehoiada instructs him. I think that is a great lesson. We that teach the Bible must teach what God says. Those that receive instruction should follow what God puts in His Word.
God was pleased with Jehoash because of his obedience. I am amazed at how God will love and accept us even when we do not do all that we should.
The next verse is tough. Jehoash was doing good but there was still more to accomplish. The people were still worshiping wrongly.
I want to be careful to do what I am supposed to do and continue to learn and grow. I want to do all that He teaches that I should do. I want to do right even though I know that He is pleased with me already.
