A lesson from Jotham

2 Chronicles 27:6 

 6So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.

Jotham became mighty, not by chance but because he did something.

 He prepared his ways before the Lord.

 This means that Jotham did not just do his own thing, he must have sought guidance from the Lord in the things he did.

 Many of us will live better lives if only we followed this principle.

 Proverbs 3:5-6 

 5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

  Its only when we acknowledge Him that He can direct our paths.
