    Bible Study Minute 5/10/18 - Godly Wisdom (1 Kings 3; 6)



    1 Kings 3; 6


    Whose wisdom are you seeking?


    In 1 Kings 3 & 6 we read about the early days of Solomon’s days as king over Israel. These days are remarkable and are the embodiment of Jesus’ words when he says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).


    Solomon’s life was characterized by humility and godliness, so the Lord gave him the rare opportunity to ask for whatever he desired. Instead of asking for fame, wealth or long life, he asked for wisdom in leading God’s people. He wanted to serve God and lead God’s people well. Pleased with this request, God obliged & gave him wisdom beyond any other. He even gave him those other things as a bonus. Later on, we find him continuing to serve God by building the Temple that his father David had wanted to build.


    Now, think about yourself. How often are your motives & desires the polar opposite of Solomon’s? So often our desires are selfish & shortsighted.


    Later in his life Solomon pens part of the book of Proverbs. In these writings he tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of both knowledge and wisdom. So, if we want to have wisdom in our lives, it will only come from seeking, honoring, and serving the Lord. The wisdom we need for this life is only found in him.


    Today, how will you honor the Lord with your life? And will you ask for his wisdom?

    I was in 1 Kings this morning ! Though I was on the end of Solomon's reign... Solomon put a heavy yoke on the people of Israel to the point they asked Rehoboam to ease their burden of labor and taxes. He refused and they revolted.. AND it was 100% God's will for it to happen. Why did this happen ? He refused to listen to his people , and the sound wisdom from the elders of Israel.
