Attention To Detail

1 Kings 6:1-38 “Attention to Detail”
Solomon began building the temple, or the house of the LORD, in the fourth year of his reign. All the details and plans for the house came from the Lord and he followed the plan in every detail. This reflected Solomon’s heart’s desire to honor the Lord in all His glory, majesty and holiness. No details were left to his or any other man’s imagination or creativity (1-10). The materials used were of great value. The stones were prepared off site so no tool would be heard in the place where it was built (7). This was to be God’s dwelling with man, His place of meeting with man, and for men [kings] to receive instruction in governing the affairs of His people. However, following the plan was not sufficient for God’s blessing, so God’s word came to Solomon! “Concerning this house which you are building, if you walk in My statutes and execute My ordinances and keep all My commandments by walking in them, then I will carry out My word with you which I spoke to David your father. I will dwell among the sons of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel.” (12-13) God requires attention to the detail He has given us in His word and ongoing obedience to His voice for the promise of HIs blessing and presence!
