Sunday, May 27

My son Solomon is young and inexperienced . . . Therefore, I will make preparation for him.—1 Chron. 22:5.


David might have concluded that Solomon was not qualified to oversee such an important project as building a house for God. After all, the temple was to be “exceedingly magnificent,” and Solomon was at the time “young and inexperienced.” Yet, David knew that Jehovah would equip Solomon to handle the work given to him. So David focused on what he could do to assist, preparing materials in great quantity. Likewise, older brothers today should not be disheartened when it becomes necessary to hand their assignments over to younger men. Rather, it is in the best interests of the work when younger ones are trained to handle responsibilities. Appointed men should have great satisfaction when the younger ones whom they have trained become qualified to take on the work. w17.01 5:8, 9

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

David was not commissioned to build Jehovah’s temple but he had a generous spirit. He knew Jehovah would help him, so he did all he could to help prepare him. Just like David, our older brothers should not get discouraged, but they should train our brothers because it’s not about a position or title. The most important thing is Jehovah’s work.
