God works in incredible ways to lead His people. We have a special responsibility to be the salt of the earth, we can not separate ourselves from this world of sin but we are call to be different and share our light to those around us.
Our favorite verse in 9 Kings Chapter 9 is:
- Joram continued with his sinful behavior and rebellion against God. He died on the ground that belonged to Naboth.
- The mistake of Ahaziah, king of Juda, was not necessarily his bad choice of non-converted friends; his error resided in not being a positive influence in their lives.
- Two kings died the same day. Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Juda, a saddening ending for two important leaders of the people of God.
