Wisdom from a father can set the stage for a bright future! David was ready to transition his reign to Solomon. He gave him some simple wisdom to build his life upon. “…learn to know the God of your ancestors intimately. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and a willing mind.” (1 Chronicles 28:9)
David told Solomon that he had to learn to know God! We can never know God without some effort! As vast as God is, we cannot know Him without putting in the time to learn about Him. Are you willing to make the time to get to know your God? He desires to show himself to you if you will seek for Him.
After we start the process of knowing Him, we have to live like we know Him! This is worship! Will you live daily acknowledging God? This is the formula for your continued success!!!
David lived this out because when it was time to give to God’s temple, David and his leaders gave the biggest offering ever recorded in history! David did not pass off wisdom that he himself did not live by. He lived a life getting to know God and then living for God. Will you do the same?
