2 Kings 3:2-3 “He (Jehoram) did evil in the sight of the Lord, though not like his father and his mother; for he removed the memorial stone of Baal which his father had made. Nevertheless, he clung to the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, into which he misled Israel; he did not abandon them.”

Jehoram moved closer to following God by removing a memorial stone of Baal. However, he is still recognized as an evil king who “did evil in the sight of the Lord”. Jehoram did not seem concerned about completely following God’s laws. He seemed more concerned about what made him comfortable. He did just enough to feel like he was doing the right thing, but he allowed the evil that he was comfortable with to continue on.

Where do we stop following God? What things are we comfortable with? Are there sins in our lives that we are complacent to live along side of? Maybe even things that are generally overlooked or even approved of within our Christian community. Are you all out following God? Or are you doing just enough to be comfortable?
