Read 1 Kings 14 today.

In this chapter we can see the division of the story between Israel (the northern tribes) and Judah (the southern tribes). From this point on the story is of the two kingdoms. Since the story alternates between the two kingdoms, care must be taken while reading to recognize which is which. Also, the word ‘Israel’ may refer to the total of both kingdoms, but usually only refers to the northern kingdom.
This chapter includes the prophesy about Jeroboam, who was the king of Israel (the northern tribes). As a result of his sin, the northern tribes also sinned. They followed the sin of their leader. It was the leader’s responsibility to lead well, but Jeroboam did not. He set up idols for the people to worship and led them away from worshipping God.
May our leaders not follow the example of Jeroboam, but rather seek the Kingdom of God first.
1 Kings 14:14-16 NIV
“The Lord will raise up for himself a king over Israel who will cut off the family of Jeroboam. Even now this is beginning to happen. [15] And the Lord will strike Israel, so that it will be like a reed swaying in the water. He will uproot Israel from this good land that he gave to their ancestors and scatter them beyond the Euphrates River, because they aroused the Lord’s anger by making Asherah poles. [16] And he will give Israel up because of the sins Jeroboam has committed and has caused Israel to commit.”
Matthew 6:33 NLT
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
