When asked what he wanted most from GOD, King Solomon said, WISDOM. The Truth revealed in Proverbs attest to this amazing gift from GOD. But Solomon became Melancholy and Depressed as he grew older. Why? 1 Corinthians 5:6, "...a little leaven leavens the whole lump?" In order to provide peace, absence of war, to his kingdom Solomon took wives from surrounding countries to guarantee their fathers, the Kings, would not attack his country. In the process he allowed them bring idols of their gods to worship and he eventually worshiped them too. To compromise is to "settle differences by mutual concession". When we compromise we give up "just a little" until we have given up everything. We need to reaffirm what is important and that which is not. If it is not important there is no need to compromise, but if it is important (the Truth) never compromise. Do we feel depressed and MELANCHOLY? Look and see if we have COMPROMISED what is important!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
