1 Kings 15:11–Asa did what was right in the sight of the Lord, like David his father.
The legacy of the kings of Judah was always compared back to King David. David left a lasting legacy of commitment and obedience to the Lord. Unfortunately, not every descendant followed in his footsteps, but they were all compared to him. What is our legacy? What will people remember about us and will they use us as a comparison to those that come after us as to whether they will follow Jesus Christ?
Lord, David had walked in Your ways and left a lasting legacy that rulers were all compared to for generations to come. I want my descendants to see You clearly in everything I did throughout my life.
