1 Chronicles 28 records David’s charge to his son Solomon. It is great!
“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with whole-hearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever” (v. 9).
Notice that the reason for whole-hearted devotion is that the Lord searches every heart, and the reason for a willing mindis that the Lord understands every motive behind the thoughts.
