Following that special Passover, the people went home and destroyed all the pagan shrines. And a good summary of chapter 31 is the last verse:
2Chr. 31:21 He was successful, because everything he did for the Temple or in observance of the Law, he did in a spirit of complete loyalty and devotion to his God.
Yesterday’s chapter of Ecclesiastes included quite a variety of Solomon’s proverbs, including:
Ecc. 7:5 GNT It is better to have wise people reprimand you than to have stupid people sing your praises.
20 There is no one on earth who does what is right all the time and never makes a mistake.
The first will be last, the last first. I think we will be amazed at the justice of God’s rewards. And in some sense, we all will receive “a fair day’s pay.” The meaning of that parable was matched and furthered by the story of the mother of James and John and what Jesus said to them.
GNT Translation note:
Mat. 21:1 As Jesus and his disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives. There Jesus sent two of [us//the] disciples on ahead
16 So they asked Jesus, “Do you hear what they are saying?” “Indeed I do,” answered Jesus. “Haven’t you ever read this scripture [when the writer said to God]? ‘You have trained children and babies to offer perfect praise.’”
