I remember the lyrics of song that said if loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Kind of sounds like a song a hopeless (or should a say reckless) romantic might sing. I have had my own encounter of loving when it was wrong. And wouldn’t you know I found myself in the Word of God as I read I Kings 11. My sneaky suspicion was confirmed that I was not the only one to find themselves on the wrong side of love.
Solomon-the wisest person in the world and a king no doubt-found himself in a precarious position. He had a thing for foreign women. Even after receiving clear instructions to avoid them.
The LORD had clearly instructed his people not to intermarry with those nations, because the women they married would lead them to worship their gods. I Kings 11:2a
Solomon was a man well versed in God’s Word and man full of wisdom.
Yet Solomon insisted on loving them anyway. I Kings 11:2b
I guess he wasn’t willing to give them up so he could be right. Some how he consider them worth the cost of being wrong.
Stay tuned as I explore the cost he paid for loving when it’s wrong.
