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.
Why the World Needs Christmas
All human beings who have ever been born were created to love God. In fact, the greatest command of all is to love God, but instead, we have replaced that love for God with love of self. As a result, we no longer find delight in living for Him, but rather, we live for ourselves and willfully step over His boundaries. Since we are all sinful, it is impossible for us to restore our broken relationship with God on our own, so God sent His Son to do what we could not do, and to rescue us.
