2023 Day 162 – 1 Kings 5-6; 2 Chronicles 2-3

God allowed Solomon to build the temple that his father David was not able to build.  “Now it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.  But the LORD said to David my father, ‘Whereas it was in your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was in your heart.  Nevertheless, you shall not build the house, but your son who shall be born to you shall build the house for my name.’” (1 Kings 8:17-19)  We are told many of the details of this build.  It took tens of thousands of men seven years to complete the temple.  Only the best materials were used to build it.  I am sure it was an amazing sight to see.  This temple was described as the house that Solomon built for God.  As marvelous as this house may have been, we have been promised an opportunity for one even better.  “For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” (2 Corinthians 5:1)
