Kings 7:1 – About You

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.

Observations:

  • 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?
