Reading this chapter, I was struck by the level of care and attention that was devoted to building a house to the Lord. It came to me that each of us is building our souls as a temple to the Lord (after all, do we not want Him to come and dwell with us?). When we build our souls to the Lord, do we exercise the same care and consideration as did Solomon? Do we build with the finest materials, or do we use shoddy imitations? Do we build according to the plans laid out by the Master Architect, or do we throw things together by happenstance and whatever we figure looks right at the time?
