In our leadership series looking at Hebrew kings, we have how reached our 5th installment. Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, had everything ready-made for a great reign. His grandfather brought unity to the kingdom and peace by conquering their enemies. His father oversaw tremendous prosperity as nations traded with Israel and he built the Temple where God would be worshipped. Success was in his future - or was it?
If you have been following this series on Hebrew kings and the lessons they can teach us, you probably wonder why have skipped the next Hebrew king. Well, I call it author's license! My podcast series has been focusing on Proverbs, which really contain a wealth of information from Solomon. Feel free to listen to the episode I have here in this post. It makes perfect sense, in my opinion, to shift to him for some lessons to be learned and applied. Let's move forward and see what we can glean from his life that can help us improve our lives.
