152 - Solomon's Death.

Kathleen's thoughts

Ecclesiastes 10,11,12
1 Kings 11: 41-43
1 Chronicles 2: 1-2, 9-17, 3: 10-24, 4: 1-23
2 Chronicles 9: 29-31
Ruth 4: 19-22
Genesis35: 23-26

Eccl. 12:  1 &12 So remember your Creator in the days of your youth...But beyond these, my son, be warned; there is no end to the making of many books, and much study wearies the body. When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is; fear God and keep His commands, because this is for all humanity. For God will bring every act to judgement, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.

1 Kings 11: 41-43 The rest of the events of Solomon's reign, along with all his accomplishments and his wisdom, are written about in the book of Solomon's events. The length of Solomon's reign in Jerusalem over all Israel totaled 40 years. Solomon rest with his fathers and was buried in the city of his father David. His son Rehoboam became king in his place.

For thought and contemplation...If wealth and honour alone could satisfy the soul, then Solomon would have known complete fulfilment. His disappointment can be summed up in the words. "I have seen all...under the sun and have found everything to be futile... Eccl 1:14. True joy is found not  Under the sun but above the sun in God's eternal presence.
