Modeling Commitment

Today's reading: 1 Kings 15:9-24

After a few generations when we get to Asa (David's great great great grandson), we finally see a different attitude and heart toward God. Following in David's footsteps, Asa chooses to follow and serve God fully. A wise decision, but one that immediately puts the difficult task in front of him of ridding the country of false gods and idols. What impressed me so much about Asa was how he demonstrated top down leadership by stepping up and dealing with idol worship within his own family. That had to have been difficult, but it modeled to the people of Judah that he was absolutely committed to God.

What are some ways that you model your commitment to God at home? At work? At school? In your community? Tami
