1 Kings 9

Solomon sent sailors who knew the sea to Ophir. They brought back 420 talents of gold. 1 Kings 9:28

Hiram, King of Tyre, was not pleased with the towns Solomon gave him. The king called them the Land of Cabul (good-for-nothing). 1 Kings 9:12

Lord, may you give me the talents you think best for me. May I use those talents to glorify you and be glad in my heart for all the good things you have done for me. Please keep me from complaining and calling your gifts “good for nothing.”


All our fretting and worrying is caused by planning without God and worrying always results in sin. – Oswald Chambers
