I find it interesting that David tells the community that his son, Solomon, is young and inexperienced until you grasp the financial responsibility of building the temple. I’m not sure how to put this in its proper perspective but when you add up the materials it totals over $174 billion! The Sears Tower only cost $174 million which means you could build 1000 sears towers for the cost of the Temple. It’s a lot of money and requires a lot of responsibility.
