And Ahab made a wooden image. Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him (1 Ki 16:33) We are to love and worship God and not put anything before Him. "Anything" pretty much sums it up! May we have undivided hearts today!

But he (Reheboam) rejected the advice which the elders had given him, and consulted the young men who had grown up with him, who stood before him. (1 Ki 12:8) Wisdom comes from various sources: age, experience, education, but especially from the Lord through His Spirit and the applying of His Word. The elders who have followed God have great wisdom the young can gain from if their instruction is received with humility.
