God’s Glory and Judgment
Today’s reading: 1 Samuel 5:1-8:22
The chief end of man is “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever” (Westminster Shorter Catechism Q. 1). In today’s reading, we see that the Philistines learned the hard way that if a people will not glorify God, they not only fail to fulfill their purpose, but they experience severe judgment.
Learn from the horrible example of the Philistines.
