Thursday, June 13: 1 Kings 11 - 12:19, Acts 9:1-25, Psalms 131:1-3, Proverbs 17:4-5 ~ Nathan

1 Kings 11:6, 9-11
(6)So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the LORD; he did not follow the LORD completely, as David his father had done.
(9)The LORD became angry with Solomon because his heart had turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice.
(10) Although he had forbidden Solomon to follow other gods, Solomon did not keep the Lord's command.
(11) So the LORD said to Solomon, “Since this is your attitude and you have not kept my covenant and my decrees, which I commanded you, I will most certainly tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your subordinates.

We may not have as much as Solomon had, but we have a lot more then most. We have also been given a great opportunity to give our lives to Jesus and live for Him, are we distracted by all our own worldly gains?

Do we focus less on what truly matters - God, and rather focus more on how to succeed in the world's eyes?

A good reminder to keep our priorities right, and spend more time focusing on God.
