A Survey of 1 Kings
One of the haunting perils of leadership is the great divorce between what happens at the office and what happens at home. Many a man and many a woman may hit a home run at the office, but what good is it if they strike out at home? This is the dilemma Solomon faced as he rose to the position of king over Israel. Blessed with a wonderful opportunity for success for both nation and family, Solomon did justice to neither. The national success Solomon achieved during his reign proved to be fool's gold; it all crumbled under the inept leadership of his son and the descendants that followed. Solomon's failures to lead in the home eventually impacted his nation—a sad demise to a once great nation.
