leadership conference

Good morning brothers and sisters,
Today we read about the transition of power from Solomon to his son Rehoboam. We know from what God said to the prophets to Solomon and to Jeroboam that this transfer of power won't go smoothly, but now we find out how it plays out.

Blessings on your day,


1 Kings 11:42-12:5
42The time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel was forty years. 43Solomon slept with his ancestors and was buried in the city of his father David; and his son Rehoboam succeeded him. Rehoboam went to Shechem, for all Israel had come to Shechem to make him king. 

2When Jeroboam son of Nebat heard of it (for he was still in Egypt, where he had fled from King Solomon), then Jeroboam returned from Egypt. 3And they sent and called him; and Jeroboam and all the assembly of Israel came and said to Rehoboam, 4“Your father made our yoke heavy. Now therefore lighten the hard service of your father and his heavy yoke that he placed on us, and we will serve you.” 5He said to them, “Go away for three days, then come again to me.” So the people went away.
