Gilbert House Fellowship #134: 1 Kings 10-11; 2 Chr 9; Proverbs 30-31

ENTANGLEMENTS WITH cares of the world, whether it’s business, politics, or personal relationships, can distract us from what we’re called to do by God.

This week, we see the fall of Solomon, whose wives draw him into the worship of pagan gods like Ashtereth (Astarte; i.e., Ishtar), Chemosh, and Molech. For his apostasy, God took the northern tribes away from Solomon’s descendants, leaving the House of David as rulers of only Judah and Benajmin.

We also discuss the visit of the queen of Sheba and two chapters of Proverbs, including the famous section of Proverbs 31 that describes the ideal wife.
