…know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts…: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever (1 Chronicles 28:9).
This charge of David to Solomon is filled with wisdom for any age.
- Know God – do not merely know of Him, know Him. “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments” (1 John 2:3).
- Serve Him with a perfect heart and willing mind – with a heart wholly given to God, eagerly responding by serving and glorifying Him.
The Lord searches all hearts and understands all thoughts. The one to whom we will answer is infinite in knowledge and existence. Seek Him and know the joy of finding Him. But, forsake Him and suffer eternal separation from Him.
