Payment to a Gentile

1 Kings 5:10-11 (NLT) Building the Temple
So Hiram supplied as much cedar and cypress timber as Solomon desired. In return, Solomon sent him an annual payment of 100,000 bushels of wheat for his household and 110,000 gallons of pure olive oil.

Bethlehem–house of bread
Gethsemane–oil-press

O Father,
Your Son Jesus, born in Bethlehem, said, “I am the bread of life.”
In Gethsemane, He was hard pressed. He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. Because of what He did for us, we who are Gentiles have been incorporated into the household of faith. We who are Gentiles have been anointed with the Holy Spirit.
We thank You.
In all of the tribulations of of our lives, help us Christians display ever more brightly the love of the Lord Jesus Christ so that the destiny of Jesus for Mississippi may unfold. Amen.
Isaiah 53:5, John 6:35, Ephesians 2:19-22
