DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 17:1-18:30; Psalm 119:145-176; Mark 6:30-56

Uzziah slept (died)…and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper. 2 Chronicles 26:23

Uzziah, a good man, became proud, and thought he could enter God’s presence on his own merits. God judged him and he became a leper. Because of that, when he died, he could not be placed with his ancestors in the tomb of the kings but was buried alone in a field. If you are expecting to enter the Lord’s presence depending on your own good life instead of trusting in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus you too will be greatly disappointed. —David Croudace

There are loved ones in the glory, whose dear forms you often miss,
When you close your earthly story, will you join them in their bliss? —Ada R. Habershon
