From You Version
Read 1 Kings 16
Baasha is now king of Israel. He became king by killing Jeroboam’s entire household. Israel’s kings follow a pattern of increasing evil and violence.
When God is ignored, evil increases. No one wants to live in an evil society, but the more we tolerate evil in ourselves, the more we become the victims of evil. We can best influence our society by increasing our dependence on God and obedience to him.
