2 Chronicles 1:7-13 King Solomon had a defining moment with God. God gave Him a precious opportunity to be given anything he desired. It seems like a Genie in a bottle question but it went far deeper and Solomon did what was right, unselfish, and would minister to God's people. Solomon said, "O Lord, who can rule your people? I need wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before them. That decision seems like it would change Solomon's life to serve God permanently and in every way.
But Solomon still needed to make daily decisions that honored the Lord. Wisdom he had and it remained. People came from other countries to ask him questions and listen to his answers. In daily decisions he chose poorly. He chose to marry women with other gods. They drew him away from Jehovah and he began to worship other gods and lead the people to also. These are the people who had been entrusted to him by Jehovah.
We sometimes have qualities given to us by God that cause us to take it easy in other areas of our lives. Some of us have the gift of preaching but are rough on individuals. A person who is very loving may be tempted to be lax in obedience. We have to be sober and alert each day. Doing the little things help, like being grateful to God often during the day, setting small goals and finishing them with discipline, and making a decision and working at it until it is complete reality.
This is written by a girl who has been nudged threefold to keep at the details of life. She wants her life to count but it only will as she pours herself into the details. Also she needs to listen to what those wiser say, who live alertly.
