1 Kings 11. King Solomon made alliances with foreign nations through marriage. The wives of Solomon brought their false gods and idolatry with them. Solomon’s heart was turned from God through his disobedience.

Are there things in your life that would turn your heart away from God? Are there things that you have allowed to enter your heart that have caused you to forget your loving Heavenly Father? Solomon’s worship of other gods shows us that it is not enough to know about God. We must have a personal relationship with Him. Sin comes from the heart and can be resisted only so long as our heart is turned towards God in faith and love.
