And the temple, when it was being built, was built with stone finished at the quarry, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the temple while it was being built. (1 Kings 6:7)
God's chosen people were commanded twice in the book of Leviticus, "Reverence My sanctuary: I am the Lord." Reverence is defined as a feeling of profound awe, respect, love and adoration. Therefore, when the temple was being built there was an attitude of reverence.
There remains a time and a place for reverence. The worship of God was not, and is not, to be taken lightly. When we stand praising and worshipping the Creator of the universe, we are standing in His presence.
We are now His sanctuary. As the apostle Paul admonished the Corinthians, we are also admonished, "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" Just as there was to be a reverence in the building of the first temple, there is to be a reverence in the edification of the new temple, whose temple you are.
