Theme of the Day
Today we hear 1 Kings 11:26-40 Rebellion in the section of the Bible on “Israel.” The kingdom of Israel is divided after Solomon becomes king. King Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, is made King. Jeroboam returns as well to report the people are weary of labor, government and taxes. This is not so different from the time of the Reformation in the 1500s or today. Who will King Rehoboam listen to? Who do we listen to?
