1 Chronicles 25-29: King David continues his preparations for when his son, Solomon, takes over as king. King David knew that Solomon would be the one to build the Temple, and made as many preparations for his son as possible, including establishing the roles of musicians, gatekeepers, treasurers, and other officials. King David also worked to order the military and government to allow for a smooth transition of power. Included in King David’s preparations was also the materials for building and decorating the Temple. David would not build the Temple, but he ensured that nothing would be wanting in the building of the Temple. Solomon is anointed and acknowledge as King of Israel, shortly before David’s death. (1 Chronicles 25:1-29:30)

In today’s world, many hold onto money tightly. Many revolve their lives around money. But that is the opposite attitude the Bible tells us to have about money. David gave away all his personal wealth for use by his son in the construction of the Temple of the Lord. The people whom David ruled over, rejoiced at his giving. His giving was done freely. It is a trait that has all but been forgotten in today’s world; joyful giving, cheerful giving, freely giving. Consider your money habits. Are you honoring the Lord?
