I am speaking about this from we who are parents (I have made mistakes too) who must be careful how we conduct our lives. Solomon’s disobedience not only affected his son, but generations to come.
Rehoboam’s life was not an upturn either. In a kingdom when things begin to slide it goes down first. We must also be careful of this in church life and also in our own family life. Here I would like to quote Hebrews 2:1-3, “Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things lest we drift away.” Then to verse 3, “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation.” We must give this attention or we will drift.
