Bible Highlights: 1 Kings 15-17

1 Kings 15:13
"He even removed Maacah his grandmother from her position as queen mother, because she had made an obscene idol for pure worship of the sacred pole. Asa cut down her obscene idol and burned it.."

At 1 Kings 15:13 Asa was removing all of the false worship in the nation, even removing his own grandmother from her position because of her involvement with the idols.  We can imagine how hard that decision was for Asa. He probably loved his grandmother, but knew that he need to take a stand against her actions. It took a lot of courage, but he was blessed for his stand. We can remember his example next time we face the pressure to be loyal to our family over being loyal to Jehovah.
