11/5: Only During a Crisis

1 Kings 14:11-20

Reflection:
Jeroboam did not seem to desire his son to be healed. He sent his wife to ask the prophet what will happen to his son and did not request for his son to be healed. Even the sickness of his son was not able to drive him to turn back to God. Jeroboam seemed to be so bent of turning away from God that even constant warnings from God and punishment from God was not able to turn him back to God. God is love, and He gave us his commandments so that we will not allow ourselves to indulge in sin. If we allow ourselves to keep falling into sin, we might be numb even to warnings and punishment from God.

Application:
God loves us so much that He does not want sin in our lives. Do not give in to sin or it will make us numb to warnings and punishment from God. Sin will truly enslave us if we allow ourselves to dwell in it.
