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.
God’s Wisdom for Everyday Life
If you knew there was a book that contained eternal wisdom for every area of your life; a book that would help you make wise decisions in your family, your finances, your job, your relationships… would you read it? God has given us that book. It is called Proverbs, and if we study it, God’s wisdom and character will flow through our lives, affecting the day-to-day decisions that we make.
