1 Kings 10:14-11:43

  1. Solomon was outwardly at the height of his power, wealth and fame (See 10:14-29).
    But what was going on within his heart in respects:
    (a) of his affection, and
    (b) of his relation to God (see 11:1-8)?
    Read Prov. 4: 23-27. What was God’s chief charge against him?
  2. How does the account of the events of 11:14-40 bring out God’s overruling hand?
    Cf. Dan. 4:34, 35; Ps. 135:5, 6.
    What effect should this truth have on a believing heart?
    Cf. Acts 4:23-30.
