Season after Pentecost, Proper 15, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: 1 Kings 2:10-12, 3:3-14
We continue to remember Israel’s leaders and how they strived to serve God. Each had their own challenges and gifts. The need for faithful leadership continues today and we seek wisdom from how these leaders sought the welfare of their people and showed their devotion to God.
As we move from King David’s reign to King Solomon’s, we see that Solomon had different gifts, tasks and leadership style. Each man sought to serve God, each in his own way.
