THEME: DEPART FROM EVIL
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.”
–This is a scriptural text that we all know which has a deep sense of purpose. It is clear that those who submit themselves under God’s divine care or guidance shall always enjoy His benefits. God gives them the wisdom which is profitable to direct, depart from evil and turn aside from the by-paths of sin. The fruit of this is peace and good health. King Solomon put his confidence in the Lord and did not depend on his own understanding. When Adonijah his brother conspired to capture his throne and openly rebelled against him, Solomon pardoned him. Familial peace was restored until Adonijah again tried to make a move for the crown by attempting to marry David’s widow, Avishag. For that, the newly crowned Solomon had him killed in a decisive early move of his kingship. King Solomon’s reign was characterised by peace and prosperity, and the Lord granted him wisdom, wealth and long life. We are also called to submit every decision to the Lord and not to depend on our own understanding but to shun from evil and He will grant us good health and peace.
