Today in Bible class we are studying the Divided Kingdom - the division between Israel and Judah. King Solomon certainly experienced a rise to unprecedented heights of personal prosperity and security, only to fall victim to moral weakness and political conflict. So too his kingdom, in the hands of is son Rehoboam, is headed toward disaster. Rehoboam causes rebellion among the people of Israel. Only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin will remain with him while the rest of Israel, all of the northern tribes, will appoint a man by the name of Jeroboam as their king. The division is permanent, and the fall is great. Civil conflict will last for years, as will wars with foreign enemies, who are quick to notice the vulnerability of this once-unified but now-broken people. This reads like the current state of America!
