For the Israelites living during the reign of King Jeroboam, life was good in the Northern Kingdom. The economy was improving and most people had jobs. There was rain for their crops. Families were healthy.
The occasional tug on their hearts to live wholeheartedly for the One, True God came less and less often, mostly only when one of those crazy prophet-types was walking through one of their towns. They were busy, happy, and certainly not interested in giving up anything in order to think seriously about God. They were living for the weekend.
