Scripture text for Thursday, February 25th, 2010: 1 Kings 16:29-19:18
One question replays in my mind as we delve deeper into our E100 adventure in the Old Testament; WHAT WERE THE ISRAELITES THINKING!?
They see God part the Red Sea, come to earth as a fiery pillar to talk with Moses, level the walls of Jericho, defeat their enemies time and time again. However, they continue to turn away from God.
Now as we read through 1 & 2 Kings we see the worsening impact of the Israelites request for a king so they could be “like the other nations” (1 Samuel 8:4-21).
