Applications from 1 Kings
The Story: 1 Kings 4:1-19
In the first section of chapter 4 is see a list of Solomon’s organization of his Kingdom. We are told who are the priests, secretaries, recorder, leaders of defense, and even those given to run Solomon’s home and servants.
Solomon was very organized.
Every “nook and cranny” had someone looking over it. Each governor looked over certain areas and reported back to Solomon. Someone made sure Solomon’s house was fed. Someone took care of his staff. Some may even see this as too organized.
- Lack of organization will lead to no “organization”!
- Lack of organization leads to unpreparedness.
- Lack of organization leads to a break-down in communication.
When unprepared, not communicating, or just not organized your: life, career, family, finances, church, etc., will begin to fall apart. It is important that we are this organized and prepared.
