Wishing for Wisdom Is Wise

Description

Asking God for wisdom is a wise request indeed, for so often with wisdom comes great success and the respect of others.

"So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil." - 1 Kings 3:9

As kids we used to play the wishing game, asking the question, “If you could make one wish, what would it be?”

I would stay quiet while others said things like, lots of money, a big house, or a motorcycle. Then I’d say, “I’d wish for unlimited wishes!” I thought I was so smart at the time, but looking back it simply revealed the incredible selfishness of a young boy.

Years ago, God said to Israel’s young King Solomon, “Ask whatever you wish Me to give you.” What an offer! Solomon chose “wisdom to lead and discernment between good and evil.” God was pleased, knowing he could have asked for wealth or long life. So God granted his wish and a wealthy, long life.

Asking God for wisdom is a wise request indeed, for so often with wisdom comes great success and the respect of others. The world is drawn to people who are wise. Remember, God and His Word are the best sources of wisdom.
