I guess the time comes when God has had enough. Over and over the kings’ rise and fall and none of them worship God alone. As God looks down on his people he sees them doing the most detestable acts. Worshiping other gods and sacrificing their own children to these false idols!
I see a connection to our culture today. I believe that we are not far off from these kings and these people. We worship many other gods and sacrifice our children to them. We want money and neglect our children to get it. We want leisure and sacrifice our children by disengaging and ignoring them. We want ease and don’t parent our children as a result. The worst is that some will actually kill their children through abortion to keep from having to be inconvenienced by their very existence!
