2 Kings 12-18
I was at the Weekend to Remember conference in Tulsa and thought that it would be in bad form to bring a laptop when I was supposed to be completely focused on my wife and marriage. However, a couple things did stand out.
17.7-12 It was pretty sobering to read God's descriptions of sin that lead to their being conquered by the Assyrians. Verse 9 was especially thought provoking. It referred to what Israel "did secretly against the Lord ... that were not right."
18.32-35 The comments by the Assyrian Rabshakeh about the Lord not being able to deliver may have just been generic comment about about the tendency of country to trust a god, but they bought the threats to a whole new level.
