What William taught on tonight ... if you missed out (UNVEILED, 1 Kings 10)

Lesson taught by William, Notes taken by derk

1 Kings 10


The Queen of Sheba visits Solomon and is amazed by all that he has... wisdom as well as riches


She only seems to offer praise for Solomon, God and as well even the servants

It was great to serve such a wonderful King... but how much more so to serve statement


Each ruler exchanges gifts - This is a very large transaction (8 or 9 thousand pounds of gold)

2 hundred 46 million ... wow... 

This does not even count the precious stone, spices, and wood


Here we see a glimpse of how rich this kingdom was
 "Silver was considered of little value in Solomon's day" ... Oh snap!! 
He is doing 'pretty' good for himself


Another declaration of his wealth

Interestingly the multiplcation of horses ... in Egypt (Deut 17:16-17) is fobidden (this is certainly open to interpretation).. and we may see more of this as we move on in other chapters
maybe Solomon saw himself as a middle man...
How many times do we 'trick' ourselves into believing what we are doing is ... ok ... for some reason
We will rationalize our actions.. even though they are wrong.
