For in the eighth year of his reign while he was still a youth, he began to seek the God of his father David; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of the high places, the Asherim, the carved images and the molten images.
2 Chronicles 34:3
He was 16. He hadn’t even found the Book of the Law yet. However, he knew what was happening in his land was wrong. He knew his own father, Amon, was wrong. This young man was God-focused.
In today’s culture, we don’t expect teenagers to be GOD-focused. We pretty much expect them to be self-focused. We shrug it off and keep chugging along, hoping it’s just a phase they will grow out of.
