Online service Chapter 14- A Kingdom torn in two
A. The upper story theme: God has a plan to get us back and God keeps his promises (to Abraham, to Moses, and to David).
B. The lower story theme (seen in Jeroboam): “The ripple effects of our decisions.” Solomon’s decisions affected Jeroboam and Jeroboam’s decisions led to a split in the nation.
Just as decisions can have a negative impact, so they can have a positive impact.
Consider how your decisions impact your family, your business, your money, your neighborhood. Think in terms of generations. What will your great grandchildren say of you? What do you want them to say? Consider the ripple effect of your decisions.
God has a plan and God can enter into your life and turn it into a story of great positive impact on others.
Perhaps you need to ask God to help you start a new story today.
