“So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the Lord; he did not follow the Lord completely, as David his father had done.”
I Kings 11:6
Solomon had everything! He was loaded with gold, animals, and valuables—wealthier than anyone who ever lived. He was given every opportunity to succeed. He had a godly father. He was both wise and rich. Yet his success distracted him and ultimately his wealth destroyed him.
Solomon followed God, but not completely. That doesn’t work with God. He doesn’t accept partial commitments and he doesn’t take second place. You’ve got to go all the way!
