Bible Highlights: 2 Kings 9-11

2 Kings 11:2, 3
"However Jehosheba the daughter of King Jehoram, Ahaziah's sister, took Jehoash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the sons of the king who were to be put to death keeping him and his nurse in an inner bedroom. They managed to keep him concealed from Athaliah so he was not put to death. He remained with her for six years, hidden at the house of Jehovah, while Athaliah was ruling over the land." 

I was struck by the bravery of Princess Jehosheba at 2 Kings 11:2 when she risked her own life by saving her nephew from being murdered. She dangerously kept him hidden for 6 years and raised him to be a good king. By saving his life she was able to preserve the family line that would lead to the Messiah. I hope that I can imitate Jehosheba's example in being a good influence on my niece and nephews and that I could also be brave enough to stand up for Jehovah when I need to.
