Week beginning Sunday 5th July
(2 Kings 22:1-23:3)
Josiah's Dad was a king, but not a good king.
Josiah became king and he had a choice to make.
Can you remember how old he was when he became king?
King Josiah knew that worshipping God was important so he got a team together to rebuild the temple.
What did they find when they were rebuilding the temple?
We think that the book he found may be the book we now call Deuteronomy, the 5th book of the Bible.
When we read it Josiah realised that everyone had been doing wrong things and he called everyone in the nation back to God. They read the book of the Bible out loud and then all turned back to God.
Josiah had a choice about the kind of king he wanted to be. Even though he was only 8 years old he decided he didn't want to be a bad king like his father but that he wanted to be a good king and follow God.
Josiah chose to do the right thing. Do you find it easy to do the right thing?
