I Kings 7:1 But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house.
This verse should get our attention. Solomon took seven years to build God His house. Then proceeded to take thirteen years to build his own house.
How often do we make more out of our house, our things, our life than we do the things of God. We are more concerned about ourselves than we are God. I want to put God first. I want Him to be honored and glorified in my life.
I want to seek Him first and His kingdom. I want to put God first in my life.
