Downfall: Leadership In The Book of 1 Kings
At some point in each of our lives, we will lead others. It may be that we are parents leading children, coaches leading athletes, a boss who leads employees, or a pastor leading a fellowship. The Bible is filled with passages that point toward what God expects of us as leaders, and the book of 1 Kings is one of the best prisms to examine the topic of godly leadership. Through the lives of kings like Solomon and Jeroboam and Ahab, we are invited to consider what it might look like to follow God’s expectations and what it might look like if we do not.
