2Chron 4; 1Kings 7 Buildings for God & Buildings for Man
Solomon was given the privilege of building the Temple for God. He began on the second day of the second month of the fourth year of his reign. The Chronicler says that while the house was being built neither hammer or axe nor any iron tool was heard in the house while it was being built. When I am doing the work of the Lord, is it quiet so that I can hear the voice of God?
He began in the fourth year of his reign, and it was completed in seven years.
After finishing this huge temple project with the help of others, he set out to build his own home. It was a massive project and took thirteen years. Do I spend more time building my own “home?” Is my own home greater and more massive than God’s home? What does this say about my priorities?
