In 1 Kings 12 we look at the story of King Rehoboam. He was given both foolish and wise counsel and he is remembered for how he responded this advice. We must be intentional about seeking good and godly advice that will lead us to glorifying God. When we hear godly advice, we must take heed.
We dive into 2 Kings 21-23 and look at the lives of a few kings. Some of these kings rebelled against God and compromised, but one chose to glorify God. We learn about these King’s relationship with God and His Word and we’re reminded of a few valuable lessons.
The people who are closest to the Lord have the greatest sense of their own sinfulness and need for Jesus Christ. Spending time in God’s Word is the best thing a Christian can do to fight against letting compromise creep into their life.
