Under a King of Higher Authority

solomon-dedicationWhen Solomon addressed the nation of Israel to dedicate the temple to God, he stood on a platform so everyone could see him. Then he did something that kings just didn’t do.

He knelt down (2Chr 6:13) in public.

“…he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven,” 

This gesture conveyed to everyone that, although he was a powerful king, he was under a King of higher authority.

As a leader, do you make it clear to others that you are under a higher authority? Can others tell from how you behave that you depend on God?
