(Not) Grabbing Life by the Horns

We live in a world that constantly tells us that we need to go and get what rightfully belongs to us. Whether you call it “manifesting” or “declaring,” we’re constantly encouraged to do what we can to make our dreams come true.

In this episode, we explore one Bible story where that kind of mentality didn’t work out so well. And that was when King David was getting ready to pass down his throne to one of his sons.

In this side-by-side comparison between David’s sons Adonijah and Solomon, what we can learn is that our qualifications are irrelevant to God if we are not first faithful.
