Read: 1 Kings 15-17
Marked: 1 Kings 15:1, In the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam the son of Nebat, Abijam became king over Judah.
In these chapters we see the days of the kings. There were good kings and not so good kings. But even the good kings compromised their relationship with God.
Mention is made how some walked in the sins of their fathers, or did evil in the sight of the Lord. Others did what was right, but not like David did. David is set as a standard.
No matter our position or privilege we determine what example we will follow and how we will behave. We can choose to do evil or we can choose to do right. Will I do right according to God’s word, or do my own thing according to those around me? I have a high standard in Jesus.
