Adonai said to him, “I have heard your prayer and your plea that you made before me: I am consecrating this house which you built and placing my name there forever; my eyes and heart will always be there.
Our Heavenly Father loves all creation unconditionally. He sends rain to the unrighteous and the righteous alike. He promised Shlomo that if he lived righteously his heart and eyes would be at the Temple which is in the center of Jerusalem, in the heart of Israel. If we desire to be in our Father’s presence we must dedicate ourselves to loving and serving Him.
