“Now Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of his father David, except he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places.” (1 Kgs 3:3)
No matter how sophisticated our cars become, driver’s instructors around the world still warn us to check our blind spots because there is always a possibility something might be hiding there. Good drivers check their blind spots before changing lanes because no matter how confident you are, human error still happens.
Solomon was a good man. He loved the LORD, he wanted to follow God’s commands… but he had a blind spot to the high places. Eventually, he would also have a blind spot to women. That blind spot was because he was human, not because he was insincere.
Check your blind spots because they can come back to haunt you if you don’t. Recognize that you are fallible and can make mistakes. Test your beliefs and your actions constantly against Scripture and surround yourself with people who will challenge you to grow and improve. A blind spot is normal, but ignoring it can be fatal.
