Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles, and two chapters in 1 Kings.
Acts 25. Paul stood trial before Festus, and Festus found that as the charges were all religious he suggested sending Paul to Jerusalem, but Paul Appealed to Caesar. To finalize the charges Paul then went before King Agrippa and client Queen Bernice (Festus could find nothing chargeable according to Roman Law on his own).
1 Kings 2. David gave his final instructions to Solomon, to whom he should show kindness and to whom he should not, and then David died. Solomon Executed Adonijah, exiled Abathar, executed Joab and Shimel, and showed kindness to the ones that had helped David. The kingdom was then firmly secured as Solomon’s.
1 Kings 3. Solomon Requested wisdom,and got it as well as great riches. Solomon then showcased his wise judgment.
