“But Joash king of Judah took all the sacred objects dedicated by his fathers—Jehoshaphat, Jehoram and Ahaziah, the kings of Judah—and the gifts he himself had dedicated and all the gold found in the treasuries of the temple of the LORD and of the royal palace, and he sent them to Hazael king of Aram, who then withdrew from Jerusalem.” (2 Kings 12:18)

Joash was a good king in a lot of ways. But this episode showed a tremendous lack of faith. Rather than trust in God’s protection, he leaned on money to buy his way out of trouble. By doing so, he saved himself, but ruined the future of his country.

Fear makes us do a lot of things. It can lead us to depend on riches or military strength or powerful governments. What we need to do is rely on God.
