Today’s Reading: 1 Kings 7:1‐51, Acts 7:30‐50, Psalm 128:1‐6, Proverbs 16:31‐33
Kings 7:1 Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished his entire house.
- The last verse of chapter 6 says that Solomon spent seven years building God’s house – the temple. He almost spent twice as long on his own house.
- The text emphasizes – own and entire. It was for himself and it was large.
How much of my life is spent building things for me? I don’t want to be remembered as a man who put more time into building things for himself than for God.
Apply: I need to look closely at what I am spending my time doing.
How do you make sure that your life is not about you?
