Rightfully King | Investing

Currently, my morning devotion is journeying through 1 Chronicles. 1 Chronicles 29 is about David turning over the crown to his son Solomon. One of the things that struck me about this part of the Bible was the conversation that David had with God about the temple. We’ve all been told that David was a man after God’s own heart.

David killed Goliath when all the other men didn’t even want to make eye contact with the giant. 

David went on to become the King of Israel and conquered many lands and people. So when I read the Bible for the first time, I thought David would have been the natural person to build God’s temple.

When I was younger, I shoveled snow off of my neighbor’s sidewalk and driveways for extra cash.

In the piece, they talked about how she abandoned them when they were young, and they ended with this: “She will not be missed by [her children], and they understand that this world is a better place without her.” Wow.
