‘The King and your choices’ (1 Kings 2:12-46)

Choices, choices, life has so many choices and decisions! We all have to make them and we all have to suffer (or be blessed by) the consequences of our decisions. As Solomon’s reign as King began to be established in 1 Kings 2:12-46, Solomon had to deal with men who had made choices about the way they would respond to him as King, and these men all had to face the consequences of their decisions. In many ways, the same applies to Jesus. When His Kingdom comes, all our choices (good or bad) will surely come into light.
