    It would be a great blessing if everyone would bring their special talent to help in building up the work of the Lord. God gave us special talents to serve him and his people.

    Here we see the WISDOM that GOD gave Solomon at work. He has summoned Huram, King of TYRE in helping to build not only the Temple to GOD but a place for himself. How we can all use this exammple in living in harmony without manipulation, jealousy, envy, and strife. But in love and devotion to the work and will of GOD. I pray this for us on earth in JESUS name. AMEN.
  • Bonnie
    How wonderful the word of''GOD'' is in showing his people how to live, and treat one another with kindness. We don't have to know one another to love one another. We are connected by the spirit of ''GOD''.
