From 1 Kings 6 “In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built. The entrance to the lowest floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third. So he built the temple and completed it…. The word of the LORD came to Solomon: ‘As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel.’ “
What would have happened if David’s implementation of God’s design had been haphazard? How many times I’ve regretted eagerly setting off to complete a job, then later realizing I’d not fully appreciated all aspects of the assignment…. We cannot afford to be haphazard in obeying God’s commands. We need to make sure we measure twice before we cut. We should be prayerful in understanding God’s will before waltzing into implementation.
