The Lord Forbids David From Buliding a Temple
Today I read 1 Chronicles 17 where David wants to build a temple for the Ark of the Covenant. It is interesting to me that the Lord is so adamant that David not build the temple, rather that it is Solomon's place to build it. I wonder what God knew that we didn't? However, you can't fault David's heart. He did not want to build a temple for his own glory, but rather he felt that the Ark of the Covenant should have a permanent resting place. The Lord did not want David to build the temple for him however. God always has his reasons it is just interesting to me is all. Until tomorrow.
