chronological day 125 :)

Let’s read 1 Chronicles 29:1-22, and 1 Kings 1 today.  I’m excited to hear what you think – leave a comment and let me know! 🙂

125

Maybe because my children are grown, coming into themselves and following the Lord, but I am struck today by David’s confidence in Solomon.

“Then David the king addressed the congregation: “My son Solomon was singled out and chosen by God to do this. But he’s young and untested and the work is huge—this is not just a place for people to meet each other, but a house for God to meet us. I’ve done my best to get everything together for building this house for my God” (1 Chron. 19:1-2 MSG)

That’s beautiful and powerful – and I bet Solomon was even more confident because of his father’s trust in him. I also love Solomon’s response to Adonijah’s rebellion against his reign – if he proved to be a man of honor, he would live. That’s the Holy Spirit and Solomon’s raising coming out in one of his first decisions as king – be generous, be kind, and desire restoration over revenge.

I’m praying that my children’s raising will come out as a legacy of generosity, kindness and love!  Let’s agree in prayer for each other’s families today.
