2 Chronicles Chapter 26 King Uzziah is next up to bat for Judah. He reigns for 52 years and does a whole bunch of awesome stuff. He wins wars, he makes allies, he builds up cities, he develops agricultural systems, and he creates a mighty army. But pride comes before a fall. King Uzziah gets so powerful that he starts to get over-confident. One day, he decides that he’d like to step into the Temple to make some offerings. Only the high priests can make offerings in the Temple and they warn him to get out. While Uzziah’s reading the riot act to the priests, he breaks out in a huge rash all over his face right there in the Temple. After that, he’s considered “leprous” so he can’t enter the Temple ever again. He’s so sick that his son Jotham has to take over his kingly duties until he dies. Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! https://temtube.com/#followforfollowback
