Key Points:

  • God told Solomon he would tear away his kingdom from him.
  • When Solomon died, his son only got to rule one tribe.
  • When you disobey God, you make things harder on everyone!

Memory Verse:

Ephesians 6:3 If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.”
