1 Kings 11 - 12

1 Kings
1 KingsSteve Gregg

In this talk, Steve Gregg discusses the final chapters of 1 Kings, focusing on the decline of King Solomon's rule due to his love for foreign women and worship of false gods. One of Solomon's servants, Jeroboam, rebelled against him and took over the northern kingdom, while Solomon's son Rehoboam took over the southern kingdom. The people of Israel ultimately turned against Rehoboam due to his unwillingness to lighten their burdens and accommodate their needs, resulting in a divided kingdom. Gregg emphasizes the importance of humility and serving the people in leadership.
