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.
The people who have had the greatest impact on history are those who have dared to break through the barriers of conventional thinking and ask “What if?” Too often we become complacent in our Christian lives and choose to just drift along with the crowd. It’s time to dig beneath our surface Christianity and ask the questions that really matter. Are you brave enough to ask these questions too?
