LEISURE and PASTIMES

March 25, 2017

Saturday

 

1 Kings 3:15

 

Then Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and made peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants

 

 

LESSON

 

God promised to bless Solomon for putting His interests before Solomon’s. He gave him much more than he asked. Furthermore, He promised to give Solomon long life if he continued to obey His Law.

 

Solomon’s expression of gratitude included more offerings. He presented these before the ark in Jerusalem. They expressed further personal dedication and gratitude for fellowship with God . They probably accompanied a covenant renewal ceremony that involved the commitment of his servants to the Mosaic Law.

 

Solomon’s life illustrates the need to persevere in the wisdom of God. Of course, all those who have truly put their faith in His promises through Christ will not die bereft of this wisdom and thus, salvation; but the way in which we are assured that we have faith is to persevere in seeking His wisdom. Seek God’s wisdom in His Word both preached and read, and you will certainly find it.

 

Memory Verse: 1 Peter 4:9
A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things. There will be sleeping enough in the grave.
