Properly Placed Hope

There are moments of hope in history, when there is widely held anticipation of being at the start of something big and glorious.  But is expectation ever matched by reality?

Today’s reading: 1 Chronicles 21:1-23:32

The transition of power from David to Solomon in the united kingdom of Israel and Judah was the first and last time that transition occurred fairly smoothly.  David made careful plans for the temple and Solomon would execute them well.  But dark days were coming.  We, too, may live to see good days and bad but in the eternal kingdom of the Son of David, Jesus Christ, there will be no sin, no death, and no tears.  That is where our hope should be placed. {See Revelation 21:1-4].

[For more reflections on this passage see the corresponding reading in my book Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 days].
