- 1 Kings 11:1-8
Your closest relationships have the biggest chance of turning your heart away from the Lord. In taking wives outside of the parameters God set, Solomon already showed his weakness in that area. From there, it was only a short trip to giving in to these women’s desires to worship other Gods.
If the wisest man to ever exist can fall to this temptation, you can too! Be diligent in putting Jesus first. Follow His commands. Follow His guidelines.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.” –2 Corinthians 10:4-6, ESV
