Today we read about the building of King Solomon's Palace!
Whoops. My mistake. I guess this photo above is of the modern-day "King Solomon's Palace" Hotel in Eliat, Israel. :) I suppose Solomon did not actually build this hotel palace with a "Water slide 48 meters long. Floodlit tennis courts, table tennis".... :)
Here is an interesting note in Tyndale's One Year Bible Companion on the Sea discussed in verse 23 - "Then Huram cast a large round tank, 15 feet across from rim to rim; it was called the Sea. It was 7 1/2 feet deep and about 45 feet in circumference." Apparently the sea was a huge tank that could hold approximately 12,000 gallons of water. It was used by the priests for their ceremonial washings. Impressive structure per the image below!

Please join us in memorizing and meditating on a verse of Scripture today: "Huram was filled with wisdom, with understanding and with knowledge to do all kinds of bronze work. He came to King Solomon and did all the work assigned to him." 1 Kings 7:14 (NIV)
Prayer Point: Pray that you are filled with wisdom, understanding and knowledge, as was Huram. Pray that you do all the work that God assigns to you to do.
