Big Ideas:

Bible Story:

1 Kings 11:1-11

Solomon was ruler of God’s people, yet he didn’t always follow God’s ways. Solomon had many wives and concubines. His wives and concubines worshiped false gods and idols. Solomon was influenced by his wives and concubines, and began worshiping their false gods and idols. Solomon missed his created purpose, which is to glorify God and worship Him alone.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
