Joash's Influences: Lessons About Following Friends
Who is King Joash
King Joash was the last from David’s family. He was preserved by God and placed into the kingdom under the direction of Jehoida, the priest. All the days of Jehoida’s life, Joash walked in the ways of God, but after the priest died, Joash turned away from God toward his friends godless direction. This raises questions about how our friends influence our walk with God.
What Can we Learn From Him
From Joash, we can learn many life lessons about friendships and fellowship and this third book of the Kings of All Creation series examines what we can learn through the Word. This study examines three key lessons:
Do we have friends who draw us away from GodExamine false ideas about salvationCreate a plan for fellowship that draws us to God

Kings of All Creation Series
This series is designed to learn from Old Testament kings and prophets in a way that is easy to read and digest for our modern times. While we quote from prophets, we attempt to explain the sections of Scripture in a way that is easy to understand and we seek to teach you practical applications from each of the kings we discuss.
