1 Kings 12:6-11 Rehoboam`s Folly Pastor Charles P. Clawson 8 February 2015
Rehoboam had an entire rich kingdom laid out for him. With little effort and a bit of sympathy for the burdens of his people, he could have had a full, long and rewarding reign. Instead, he chose the folly of the unwise, the untested. He decided to act as "big man on campus" before his friends rather than a wise man elevated to a position of great power and trust. His folly cost him his kingdom and stands as a warning to us even today. When given the chance to take on a leadership position, will we act in pride and puffery, or understand the most important thing to being a leader, is to be a wise servant of those you lead.
