David makes Solomon the next king and charges him to be faithful to God.
- Exalting Oneself – Adonijah exalted himself as the next king only to be humbled when David made Solomon king. Later Adonijah tried a new scheme to exalt himself as king, and it cost him his life. Are you seeking to exalt yourself? Will you humble yourself before the Lord and let him exalt you in his own way and time (James 4:10)?
- Faithful to God – David charges Solomon to faithfully follow the ways of the Lord with all of his heart and soul (2:1-4). Are you faithfully following the ways of the Lord? Does your heart desire to be faithful? In what ways are you tempted to be unfaithful?
