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.
Don’t Put Your Hope in the Wrong Leader
We live in a world where leaders fail us on a regular basis. Pastors fall, elected officials betray us, and our heroes let us down. Even the greatest leaders at their very best are flawed. There is only One in whom we can totally place our trust. His kingdom will never fall and He will reign in truth and justice forever. If you put your faith in any earthly leader, you will be disappointed. Put your hope in Jesus. He will never fail you!
