He did evil because he had not set his heart on seeking the LORD. 
2 Chronicles 12:14

The recurring theme. He did evil.

It’s easy to spot evil.  Everyone points it out.  Finding the root cause is harder.

Evil wasn’t revealed in just the actions of the king.

The Bible speaks to the evil that was in his heart because it was not right with God.

Evil is not just found in actions, but the root of evil is found in our heart’s desire.

Watch the evening news for very long and you will have to think, “How could anyone do something that evil?”

Here is the answer, they stop seeking after the things of God.

Once you set a course away from God – the destination can be very scary.

Avoid the problem – seek after God’s ways . . . now!

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
