“Now King Solomon loved many foreign women, along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women, from the nations concerning which the LORD had said to the people of Israel, “You shall not enter into marriage with them, neither shall they with you, for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods.” Solomon clung to these in love. He had 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines. And his wives turned away his heart. For when Solomon was old his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart was not wholly true to the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father” – Just like Solomon was at the beginning of his reign, we all start off strong for the Lord on New Year’s Day. However, what really matters is how strong we are when the year is done…How did you do in 2015? Did you finish the year on a strong note, or did you fall behind as the year progressed, or perhaps even quit the race altogether before the year ended???
