Introduction:

I.    Jeroboam's dilemma. 1 Kings 12:12-27.

 

 

II.   Jeroboam institutes false worship. 1 Kings 12:28-33.

 

 

III.  A prophecy and a sign. 1 Kings 13:1-5.

Questions for reflection:

  • What is wrong with Jeroboam's pragmatic rationale for establishing new worship
    centers with golden calves?
  • How might churches make similar kinds of mistakes based on a pragnatic impulse?
  • Underneath Jeroboam's pragmatism is a loss of confidence in the Word of God.
    Are there ways in which your decisions or behavior show a loss of confidence in
    God's word?
