1 Kings 7 is a chapter that focuses on the construction of the temple of Solomon. It begins with a description of the palace that Solomon built for himself, which was even more magnificent than the temple. The palace was made of cedar and overlaid with gold, and it had a throne room and a hall of pillars. The chapter then goes on to describe the temple that Solomon built for the Lord. It was made of stone and overlaid with gold, and it had two pillars at the entrance. Inside the temple were two cherubim made of olive wood and overlaid with gold, and a golden altar. The chapter ends with a description of the bronze basin and the ten stands that were made for it.
This chapter is a reminder of the importance of building a place of worship for the Lord. It shows us that Solomon was willing to put a great deal of effort and resources into building a temple for the Lord. It also shows us that the Lord was worthy of such a magnificent structure. The chapter also serves as a reminder of the importance of honoring the Lord with our resources. We should be willing to put our time and money into building places of worship for the Lord, and we should be willing to honor Him with our resources.
