As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been. 1 Kings 11:4 (NIV)
Solomon was rich, famous and seemed to have everything. However, as he grew older he allowed other things to take priority in his life. The things he gave priority to drew him away from God and as a result we read this indictment of him – ‘… his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God …’
God does not want part of our devotion. He does not want part of our lives. God wants us to be as true to him in our later lives, as we were when we first accepted Christ. Does your faith still excite you? Be careful as you get older that you don’t allow other things to take priority in your life. Remain ‘fully devoted’.
