Chapter 16

Ahab was the most evil king Israel had ever seen.  Ahab served and worshiped Baal and was displeasing to the Lord.  Essentially, he was a “drama king” as we will see in further passages.

One thing we learn from both the good and bad...

How Are Your Friendships Affecting You?

We see in 1 Kings how as Solomon grew older, he had many wives and grew more foolish and distant from God. How are your friendships affecting you? #Biblestudy #1Kings #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

There’s a popular saying that goes like this:

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.”

Consider for a moment – who are your closest friends?  And how are your friendships affecting you?

Good friends will push you closer to Christ and towards what is good and noble, but bad friends will introduce you to new things and new ways that could lead you astray.  1 Corinthians 15:33 says:

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Join me on today’s video, as I share about some of my friendships and their affects on me, while also taking a closer look at Solomon and his demise in 1 Kings 11.

Life is not stagnate. Just because we have good friends today – that does not mean that we will have good friends tomorrow.  As seasons change, some of our friendships will change as well.  So we will always have to be wise women, who pay close...

Welcome back to Week 3 in the Book of 1 Kings!  You all are doing a GREAT job! Keep on going!!!  This week we will cross the half way point of our reading.  Up until this point we have been focused on Solomon but this week we will begin to see the rise and fall of more kings.  Some of the chapters are long so make sure you leave enough time to read them slowly and really soak it in.

If you missed week 1’s wrap up – it is here and if you missed week 2’s wrap up – it is here.

If you are looking for guidance in the color coding and daily insight into the reading – please visit me on Instagram and visit the hashtag #WomenLivingWell – there are lots of women posting their pictures of their color coded Bibles and their reflections on our reading.

Our Need for Silence

In this digital age, we are surrounded by constant noise: screens, email, and social media. How well do we recognize our need for silence? #Biblestudy #1Kings #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

There is a new home being built on the street right behind my house.  Each day I wake to the sound of birds chirping and then…the hammers begin hammering.  If you’ve ever been on a construction site, then you know how loud the bulldozers and saws and cranes and other power tools can be.

And so when I read 1 Kings 6, I was struck with awe as Solomon’s magnificent temple was being built…in silence!

When the house was built, it was with stone prepared at the quarry, so that neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron was heard in the house while it was being built.

Can you imagine?  Some estimate Solomon’s temple to have been worth, in today’s value, over $216 Billion!   That’s A LOT of stone and timber being made to fit — in a quarry off site!

1 Kings 5:15-18 tells us who cut the stones:

15 Solomon also had 70,000 burden-bearers and 80,000 stonecutters in the hill country, 16 besides Solomon’s 3,300 chief officers who were...
