Daily Bible Reading Day 330: 1 Chronicles 22/ 1 Peter 3
1 Chronicles 22
There was a gift of land to David for him to build God’s temple. But David knew that this was not to be a gift but a sacrifice unto God.
Due to David’s sins, God said David’s son, Solomon would be the one ultimately to build the temple. David heard God’s “no” and accepted it. He was not jealous of his son. There will be times someone else will see it come to fruition, even though you worked hard on it. Be thankful that it gets accomplished instead of who achieves it.
1 Peter 3
Submission is to voluntarily cooperate with someone out of love and respect for God and to that person. It isn’t a demeaning action. We are instructed as wives to do that to our husbands. Husbands are to respect their wives. If they do not, this can hinder answers to their prayers. By having the right relationship with others, we can have the right relationship with God.
Our actions speak louder than words. We are to show others the meaning of being a Christian by how we act more than what we say.
Keep the peace, do not take revenge, pray for our enemies, be a blessing.
