1 Kings 15:1-8
When Rehoboam died, his son, Abijam, became king. He was only king for 3 years, but he continued to rule and follow the practices of his father Rehoboam. So why did God let him and his descendants continue to reign?
Because God is faithful, even when we are not! God had promised David the rule of the kingdom and because of this God remained faithful to His promise, even though the kings were breaking their part of the deal. God continues to be faithful even when we are not. God keeps His promises. Unlike men, God can always be depended on to keep His word!
