1 Kings 14 (ESV)

At that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam fell sick. And Jeroboam said to his wife, “Arise, and disguise yourself, that it not be known that you are the wife of Jeroboam, and go to Shiloh. Behold, Ahijah the prophet is there, who said of me that I should be king over this people. Take with you ten loaves, some cakes, and a jar of honey, and go to him.

How short their memory was, forgetting all the good God had done as well as the judgement God executed and warned Israel about if they disobeyed. May I/we not be subject to such shortsightedness and remember God and follow Him.

    And it is even more sad that even Rehoboam and Judah do the same..worshiping false gods and following the practices of those who God removed from Canaan. Will they and we ever learn…
