11 Now, my son, may the LORD be with you; and may you prosper, and build the house of the LORD your God, as He has said to you. 12 Only may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the LORD your God. 13 Then you will prosper, if you take care to fulfill the statutes and judgments with which the LORD charged Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and of good courage; do not fear nor be dismayed.
2 Chronicles 22:11-13, NKJV




Father-Son Moment


The passage shown above gives us a picture of one of those rare moments when a father (David) has a heart to heart talk with his son (Solomon). David is reaching the end of his life and is sharing with his son Solomon, the next king of Israel, the most important, heart-felt, advice that he can think of.



What is the most important thing that you want to pass on to your children? If you knew your days were only a few in number, and you had the opportunity to spend a few minutes with each family member, what would you say? What would you tell them is the most important thing for them to remember and to do for the rest of their life?



This is the advice that David gave to Solomon.


Then you will prosper, if you take care to fulfill the statutes and judgments with which the LORD charged Moses concerning Israel. Be strong and of good courage; do not fear nor be dismayed.



Notice that he said this after he acknowledged that Solomon did not have the strength to do any of this by himself. Look at verse 12,


Only may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the LORD your God.



The most important advice that David could give to his son, Solomon, was, get spiritual understanding, and oh, by the way, the only way to get it is to go to God, Himself, and ask!



Let's take a little peek into the future and see if Solomon heeded David's advice.



At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, “Ask! What shall I give you?” 6 And Solomon said: . . . . give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?” (1 Kings 3: 5b and 9)



What will your Father-Son Moment or Mother-Daughter Moment be like at the end of your life? Pray that God will grant to you and to your children after you spiritual understanding.
