Friday June 4, 2021 “A Thousand Talents of Silver”

2 Kings 15:19 “19 Pul king of Assyria came against the land; and Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver, that his hand might be with him to strengthen the kingdom under his control.”

Menahem, King of Israel, was brutal and he was a manipulator like we see here. Instead of defending his land, Menahem chose to pay an enemy to help him have stronger control over his nation. Let us pray today that our national leaders will not cut deals with our enemies for so called “favors” that will result in more governmental controls.
