Thou hast made us as the offscouring And refuse in the midst of the people. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Even our scent is offensive to our neighbors.
Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, I will be king: and he prepared him chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him.1 Kings 1:5
Dear Church and Friends,
The world has its way and we can see that the way of the world is very old when reading Adonijah’s story. He created a marketing plan, leveraged his assets, and made all the right connections to achieve his dream. However, he didn’t have one thing, a promise; that belonged to Solomon. In this edition of Sunday Morning Worship, we’ll see the contrast between the power of self-promotion and the power of a promise.
All my best,

Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: Thou hast slain, With your glittering sword. Thou hast not pitied. My iniquites have separated us, Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, That our prayer should not pass through. My sins have made your ear heavy. Thou hast made us as the offscouring and refuse In the midst of the people.
We have transgressed; There is none righteous, And have rebelled: No, Not one! Thou hast not pardoned. "Turn thee unto me, And have mercy upon me; For I am desolate and afflicted."
