If God said you could ask Him for any one thing and He would give it to you, what would you ask for? Solomon was actually given that opportunity, and he chose the wisest thing anyone could ever ask for — wisdom. We’re later told that all the people in Israel could see the wisdom of God in Solomon. As you and I go about our daily lives, can other people see God’s wisdom in our decisions, our pursuits and our words? We should ask God for wisdom so that His glory can be on display through us.
Becoming Bold Followers of Jesus
Nowhere in the Bible do we ever see Jesus asking anyone to “become a Christian.” Instead, He asked people to “follow Him,” and there is a world of difference! Jesus never made it easy for people to follow Him. In fact, He drove the crowds away by telling them they had to be willing to give up everything first. Today we’ve replaced those demands of our Lord with easy statements like, “Invite Jesus into your heart,” or “Sign a church card.” It is our desire to go from simply being Christians to being bold followers of Jesus Christ; surrendering all and following Him wherever He leads!
