After many military victories, neighboring kings sent David gifts of gold, silver, and brass. David knew that it was the LORD that had given him his victories, so dedicated these materials for the Temple’s construction. David avoided the trap that takes many. It is easy to believe that our material blessings are the result of our own skill and hard work, rather than than gifts from a loving God. Please open your Bible to First Chronicles chapter eighteen, verse nine, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his study of this chapter.
