Day 172

Today’s Reading – 1 Kings 10-11 and 2 Chronicles 9
and God said to Solomon: You did what you wanted and not what I told you to do.
I Kings 11:11
Don’t let anyone fool you … beautiful women are not the cause of All the trouble in the world.

True, Solomon loved women and most of his troubles begin after he becomes enraptured with the Queen of Sheeba.

BUT, Solomon’s real problem was that he didn’t listen to God.

We can make all kinds of excuses.

We can point blame with all of our fingers.

Truth is our problems come because we refuse to listen to God.

It is not that God hasn’t spoken, but rather we just won’t listen.

Solomon was great at espousing wisdom, but speaking and listening are not the same.

Try living your faith.

Your life will always speak more than your words.
Tomorrow’s Reading – Proverbs 30-31


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
