The Legacy of Kings

The Legacy of Kings

King Jeroboam’s son Abijah was sick, and as he sat at the boy’s bedside, he called for his wife to disguise herself and seek out the prophet Ahijah.

2 Chronicles 12:6
In our previous reading, we heard about the man of God who went to Jeroboam to deliver a word of condemnation from God for this king who’d turned to idol worship and abandoned God’s law. On his trip home he had believed the word of a prophet who lied to him about God and had disobeyed the Lord’s command. This disobedience cost the man his life. And as we’ll hear in today’s passage, the two kings in the divided kingdom of Israel will suffer the consequences of their own sins. We’ll once more be reminded that the only path to true success is following God’s commands and trusting Him.
