1 Kings 15, Why did God choose to use Rehoboam and Jeroboam?

Question: Jeroboam n Rehoboam were Choosen God knew their hearts this was the 3 king he choose why did he? Answer: Why does God choose any person?  He knows our hearts…  Well, this is a question I cannot answer.  Only God knows for sure.  The point is; God’s choosing does not eliminate our freedom to obey Him.  God gave these kings opportunities to serve Him as David did.  God gave them promises (example: 1 Kings 11:38), if they would follow His commandments, He would be with them and give them an enduring house.  God chooses to use you too!  Why, I don’t know.  But it is up to you to choose to follow His commands, walk in His ways, and do what is right in His sight, and His promises are the same; He will be with you and build you an enduring house.  -PG
