Rule at any cost!

Today's reading over and over it said, ....did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. Over and Over again. Until it got even worse.

2 Kings 15: 16-20 the reading about Menahem. He killed the entire population and ripped open the pregnant woman. I thought they just keep getting worse. My mind immediately went to today and around the world....

I don't have to name the countries or the things happening it's bad. Just watch the news and the words they did what was evil in the sight of the Lord...The same is true. Wonder what God is feeling about all of us and the evil in this world? He would have to be unhappy and we all take on the attitude of see no, hear no, speak no and it will all go away....Does it? Nope?

Pray today for the world we all live in that we will remember the difference between good and evil. It is sad that people want power and it doesn't matter who gets in the way to get it! Just watch the news and see the young people that were killed yesterday and early this morning already across the globe...

Debbie, I have been pondering on that statement also, "he did what was evil in the Lord's sight." It seems to always be followed with, "he refused to turn from the sins that Jeroboam led Israel to commit."

Do you think that is referring to the idols that Jeroboam errected for the people to worship? Idol worship was and is a serious offense in the Lord's sight.

Thankfully, "if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1John 1:9

Praying that I do not do or say anything today that is evil in the Lord's sight.
