1 Kings 15:
A couple of things stood out to me in this short passage.
First, Asa did what was pleasing in the Lord's sight. We, too, need to be concerned with how our actions look to God, not what they look like to those around us.
Second, he didn't just do the right thing when it was easy, he also did the right thing when it was hard, when it cost him something. It could not have been easy to depose his own grandmother, but he knew that his relationship with God and doing what was right was more important than pleasing his grandmother.
Third, his heart remained completely faithful to the Lord throughout his life. Would that was said of all of us!
