1 Kings 3

Today we are reading 1 Kings 3. In this chapter we read about Solomon asking God for wisdom of rule His people. “At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”” 1 Kings‬ ‭3:5-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬ God was pleased that Solomon did not ask for selfish gain but was concerned about being a good king so he asked for wisdom. When have you asked God for wisdom? How have those around you benefited from the wisdom God supplies? How has God’s wisdom made your life better? May God give you the wisdom he gave Solomon for your benefit and for His glory! Pastor Tim
