Heart Failure
1 Kings 11
February 15, 2015
1 Kings Old Testament

What poses the greatest threat to potentially turning your heart away from God? For Solomon, it was the influence of 1000 pagan women-700 wives and 300 concubines. Though God had made it clear that marriage was to be exclusively between one man and one woman, Solomon had allowed his own lust and selfish desires to lead his heart away from God. He began worshiping the false gods of his pagan wives. It was a low point in Israel’s history and a reminder to us that we must deal with the things that could lead to “heart failure” in our own lives before we would turn away from God.
