2 Kings 15.3
He did well in the eyes of God, following in the footsteps of his father Amaziah.
this is how we do well in your eyes, when we stay the course, when we follow you and you alone. this is how we do well in the eyes of others, when we are all about pleasing you. this is how we do well in the eyes of this world, when we are all about loving, faithfully honouring you, having you as our God and we being your people. thank you that we get to participate in what you do, we get to partake of your goodness, we get to be exposed to things you reveal - all this so we can serve your purposes here on earth while we wait to be fully with you in your presence. thank you that we get to bring others along with us and love on them the way you do.
