This morning, the C4 group began our new year considering King Solomon’s life.
A few takeaways:
- Solomon’s response for wisdom benefited his kingdom (1 Kings 3). Receiving godly wisdom (James 1:5) always benefits those around us.
- Solomon marveled at the BIGness of his God…and the fact that He would listen and respond to his prayers (1 Kings 8). Our prayer life – or lack thereof – reveals whether or not we truly marvel at the same.
- Solomon began strong but finished weak (1 Kings 11). The culprit? Spiritual compromise. What may seem like a “pebble” called compromise one moment can quickly become a stumbling block called sin — and the next thing you know… (James 1:13-15)
What could someone learn from watching our lives? I’ll grab my steel-toed shoes if you grab yours!
