What do you do when you see incompetence ruling all around you? The solution from the wisest man who lived is telling us through Ecclesiastes to have meekness as your inner strength, the power under control that allows you to stay effective when all of this foolishness is going on. Don’t compromise your principles. Stay effective and calm when all of this foolishness is happening to you and be willing to be left outside of the inner ring. If you’re not willing, you’ll lose personally.

David is giving the charge to his son Solomon as he is about to go the way of all the earth (nice way of saying that “I am about to die”). He wants to pass the torch of leadership for God’s people Israel. God has given Solomon great wisdom from his youth. But what David cannot give his son is heart, an obedient heart. David was a man after God’s own heart but Solomon was not. Chris White speaks from 1 Kings 2:1-3.
