Devo Give God the praise due Him
1 Kings 12:27-30 (KJV)
27 If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
29 And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
30 And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan.
God of course was the one who brought the Israelites out of Egypt and set them free from their Giving slavery. Now King Rehoboam was trying to save his own skin because he feared the people more than God. The people gave glory to false gods from what God did for them. God does not share His glory. I see people giving Glory to others for what God has done. Be careful to give God all the glory for all he has done in your life. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. glory to others for God’s work is a sin. Many will not give Him the glory for healing them and so insight His anger against them. Jesus healed people and said go and sin no more.
