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.
Christmas Past, Present and Future
All of us, to one degree or another, deal with three main areas of life. We battle with the shame of things we did in our past; we struggle to understand why certain things are happening to us in the present; and we often experience fear of the unknown about our future. The real Christmas story is about a Savior who came to give us forgiveness from our past, peace in the present, and hope for our future!
