1 Chronicles 23:
King David was old and while his son Solomon was king over Israel, David reorganized the priest and the Levites into various departments and responsibilities. The purpose of life is to leave inheritance for your children and not just demanding respect and obedience from them. In previous chapters, King David wanted to build God’s temple, but God wanted Solomon to build it instead. David still went ahead to make sure he got all the building materials ready for Solomon, so that he does not start from zero. Now that Solomon is king of Israel, David still goes on to organize the workers of the house of God in his old age. One less thing for Solomon, his son, to worry about. We must leave inheritance for our children so that they have an easier life than we did and not start from the same level we started from. This is God’s progress.
