1 Kings 12:25-33
We need to examine our lives for any substitutes we’ve allowed to replace the Lord, and we should make our daily pilgrimage without regard to personal convenience. Jeroboam worried he would lose the kingdom if Israel worshiped the Lord in Jerusalem, so he offered a series of substitutes: alternate gods, an alternate capital, alternate temples, alternate priests, and alternate feasts.
He accommodated the people’s need for worship by appealing to convenience as a justification for compromise. Bad idea.
