Solomon is known for being the wisest man who lived (apart from Jesus, of course).
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 119:103 (esv)
But being wise doesn’t always translate to being godly.
In fact, some of the wisest people foolishly separate themselves from the Source of that Wisdom – God!
Solomon lost track of the more important thing –
instead of worldly wisdom, which is fleeting. seeking God and remaining in His Word
May we always seek and remain in His Words, which are sweeter than honey!
1 Kings 3:4-15 Psalm 119:97-104
Typically the Sunday after Christmas is…not well attended.
Lord, I am your servant, and now I can die in peace, because you have kept your promise to me. With my own eyes I have seen what you have done to save your people, and foreign nations will also see this. Your mighty power is a light for all nations, and it will bring honor to your people Israel.
Luke 2:29-32 (cev)
It seems anticlimactic and the excitement of Christmas is over.
Perhaps it seemed that way for Mary & Joseph, too.
The shepherds were gone, the birth has happened and now comes…regular life.
But the coming of Jesus gives us a different take on Life.
As Simeon said soon after Jesus’ birth, he can now
go in peace having seen God’s salvation in Jesus!
exciting! That is meaningful! That is LIFE!
Thanks You, Lord!
Let us now, also, depart in the peace that comes from Jesus!
Thank You, heavenly Father, for sending Your Son, Jesus to us!
May there be peace on earth and goodwill among all! (Luke 2:14)

If we want to
be more like Jesus, we need to act more like Jesus.
One of the primary things that Jesus did was to be in His Father’s House (i.e., “in church”) and in The Word (i.e., “the Bible”). If we are to grow “in wisdom and stature” and in our love of the Lord and in deeds that please Him, we need to do the same by seeking His Word and His presence.
May we commit to that this 2021 and beyond!
I must be in My Father’s House.
