2 Kings 10:28-29–Thus Jehu eradicated Baal out of Israel. However, as for the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel sin, from these Jehu did not depart, even the golden calves that were at Bethel and that were at Dan.
Jehu was thorough. He destroyed all the family of Ahab, the believers and priests who followed the false god Baal, and everyone associated with or connected to them. He did just what God had told him to do, but only in that one area. Jehu did not worship God. He followed God’s commands when they lined up with his own desires and plans, but wasn’t interested in committing his life to God Himself. Do we follow God only when it’s convenient?
Father, You are worthy of my obedience every day and in every area of my life. I pray You will help me to display my devotion every day and not just be a follower when it’s convenient.
