Explore our personal self ishness and ask God to help us control it ? Recognize how selfishness breeds corruption and oppression ? Commit to live a life that pleases God Background: God blessed Israel with a strong surge in her economy. Syria's army military power was destroyed under Jeroboam II (son of Joash, king of Israel).
