11 Dec II Kings 17:7

7 All this took place because the Israelites had sinned against the LORD their God…  

We have seen through our timeline that sin has terrible consequences. Remember Adam and Eve? Saul? David? Solomon? And we pick up our story this week with Israel exiled. That means that they were separated from their land. That’s what sin does! It separates us from friends, from family, and from God. Do you need to ask anyone’s forgiveness for a mistake you’ve made?
