Kings and kingdoms come, and kings and kingdoms go. Note:
- The Summary of Your Life – King after king comes onto the scene, reigns, and dies. And this book summarizes each one by only one standard – did he do right in the eyes of the Lord or evil in God’s sight? What matters most is your how you live in relation to God. How will your life be summarized? Even the kings who did right often had exceptions noted. Are there exceptions in your life you need to deal with?
- Sin and Consequences – According to chapter 17, God dispersed the nation of Israel because they sinned against the Lord. Sin has consequences. Are you taking sin in your life seriously?
