Solomon

23 Apr

-1 Chronicles 28:9-

-“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts.

If you seek him, he will be found by you; but it you forsake him, he will reject you forever.”-

The Old Testament is a cruel book and the book of Samuel is awash with blood.

It’s been difficult reading. The death of Sauls descendants to appease the Gibeonites is particularly distressing. (1 Samuel 21)

God seems always to be bargaining with humans, favoring some and not others, demanding Obedience, condemning generations…

Yet. Yes, I seek him. And he says he can be found.
