I Kings 10 speaks of Solomon’s outstanding wealth and wisdom. But I was reminded of the Jews coming back from captivity in Nehemiah and Ezra. They remembered the greatness of Solomon’s temple and the wealth. But they were coming back trying to rebuild from absolute rubble and ruin. God had warned Solomon that all he had built would become a heap of ruins if they serve other gods (I Kings 9:6-9). The United States has been abundantly blessed by God, but we need to repent and turn to God lest we become a heap of ruins.
