July 24, I Kings 12:16-25
The kingdom is divided just as God said it would. The division is because of years of idolatry but I wonder, had Rehoboam repented, turned to God with his whole heart and listened to the people would that make a difference? But we see that's not his nature, he's a proud arrogant king who wants his way even to the point of civil war. The parallels of this man and so many others in history are amazing. Political leaders welcome fighting amongst the people to accomplish their own objectives. It's happening today all around the world. We need the Holy Spirit to move us to peace and obedience.
