READ: 1 Kings 3:3-15

“But seek ye first the kingdom of god, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” – Matthew 6:33

Solomon was having a prayer time and asked the Lord to give him an understanding heart to discern between good and bad.

The Bible teaches us that his prayer pleased God. The Lord was impressed by Solomon’s desire to seek for wisdom in order to be able to rule well. He gave him wisdom and in addition, fantastic riches. Let’s face it! How many of us really seek for righteousness and wisdom from God?

When I entered into full-time ministry, there were lay people who said to me, “Oh, you come from a rich family. You do not have anything to lose,” they said. “Even if you don’t work, your father will give you money.” I often smiled and said nothing.
