Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 3:1-17 (day five).
“The gold nails weighed fifty shekels. He also overlaid the upper parts with gold.”
Gold nails? Even that part was intentional. Could seem extreme to our “be good stewards” culture. But not to Solomon, or to God. What we can learn, is that God is aware and interested in the smallest details. Of this project. Of our lives. It speaks to His all encompassing love and care. Does that encourage you? Does that shape the way you pray (every detail shared in praise, confession, and supplication)? God is aware of all of it. More than that, He cares about all of it.
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. –Luke 12
