Today you should read: 1 Chronicles 22

When reading this passage, one verse stands out as a good summary of the chapter:
Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God. Arise and build the sanctuary of the Lord God, so that the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the holy vessels of God may be brought into a house built for the name of the Lord. (22:19, ESV)
This verse is David giving instructions to Solomon about building the temple. The building of the temple was of huge importance because it represented God to the people. David was originally going to manage the project himself, but God said otherwise (v. 8) . So David instructed Solomon and gathered support for Solomon in his quest to build the temple.
How does this apply to us? While none of us have been given the assignment to build a temple for God, all of us have been given a commission by God to love Him and love people, and to be on mission for Him by advancing the gospel and discipling others. From verse 19, we must take the command to seek the Lord with our mind and heart seriously. Are you seeking God this week? Or are you allowing other things to distract you from Him? Is your life being lived for the glory of God alone?
