II Kings 23:37 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.
Jehoiakim did evil in the sight of the Lord. Man may have his opinion of what is right and wrong but what is actually wrong is what God states. Man likes to take what God calls evil and fix it, so it is ok. We decide it is right in our generation. We wouldn’t do what we “really,” thought was wrong. We just do what has become acceptable. Our parents did it, so we accept it. It has become accepted or correct in our lifetimes.
We must realize that evil is what God says is evil. It doesn’t matter what our parents have done but what God says. Custom doesn’t make it right. God determines what is right.
Am I seeking God and His will to live out in my life? Does the will of God matter to me more than the will of society?
