“After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves” [I Kings 12:28(NIV)]

April 22

“After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves”. Seeking advice is commendable: seeking and taking the wrong advice is folly. Jeroboam was crowned king over Israel. He immediately felt he had a problem – if his subjects went up to Jerusalem to worship they might revert to Rehoboam, king of Judah. So he sought advice from his counsellors who advised him to make two golden calves to be placed in Dan and Bethel and where they would be made centres of worship.
Jeroboam could have sought advice from the Lord, but didn’t. It’s the same today – all the good advice of men cannot equal the counsel of God. Prayer is the God-given means of finding God’s will. ‘Ask and you shall receive’ applies to guidance as much as to anything else. Those who trust the Lord are never confounded.
