Notes from the Journey with David – 141

141. If your descendants watch how they live…they will never fail (1 Kings 2:4).

David’s words to Solomon offer a promise, and an inherent warning. He tells his son that as long as he obeys God, he will be blessed and maintain his throne, and so will his descendants. Danger is ahead, however, if any turn away from God. We know that God made a promise of a throne to David, and that the promise would extend through Solomon’s life, but Solomon failed to obey God fully and the kingdom passed from his sons. Here’s a valid leadership truth–if we will be faithful to God, he will uphold us. But if we choose our own path, then we will be left to our own wisdom in holding our “kingdom” together.
