Keep the Charge
Today's reading: 1 Kings 2:1-12
One of the last things David does before he dies is give a powerful charge to his son, Solomon, as the new king of Israel. David instructs him to stand firm and be faithful to God above all else. It was a wise and crucial instruction for Solomon, but it's also a wise and crucial instruction for us today, thousands of years later.
"[K]eep the charge of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies...that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn..." (1 Kings 2:3, ESV)
What does "keeping the charge of the Lord your God" look like for you in a typical week? How does (or would) striving to live out this command impact your day-to-day life? Tami
