Just as God made promises to David, He also makes them to Solomon. God’s promises carry the condition of Solomon continuing to obey God. Solomon’s influence goes beyond the borders of Israel to the north in Tyre and to the south in Egypt.
Solomon is able to build upon his father’s success. He inherited wealth and a kingdom, but also a heritage of a relationship with God. What will our children inherit from us? There is only one inheritance that will never mislead them and last for eternity, and that is one of faith.
