I Chronicles 1:47 And when Hadad was dead, Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.
I find this chapter to have one thing that jumps out at me. There is a list of people that lived and died. The world went on. One died and another took their place.
Sometimes it seems that we live like there is no tomorrow. We think that we are going to live forever. The truth is that we only have this little time here on the earth. We must make the most of it. We must accomplish what we can with the life that God gives us.
Soon we will die and another will take our place. What will we do in the meantime that is of any lasting value?
