Ask for Anything

Our Bible Reading today tells us about King Solomon. One day God said to Solomon, “Ask for anything you want. I will give it to you” (verse 5b).
Wow! What would you do if God said to you, “Ask for anything”? Would you ask for money or fame or power? Maybe you would ask for beauty or to live longer. It is sad that many people in our world today have money, fame, power and beauty, but they are still not happy.
Solomon gave God a good answer. He said, “So I ask that you give me wisdom so that I can rule and judge the people in the right way. This will allow me to know the difference between right and wrong. Without this great wisdom, it is impossible to rule these great people” (verse 9).
Because Solomon did not ask for wealth or power, God said (verse 13b), “…to reward you, I will give you those things that you did not ask for. All your life you will have riches and honor.”
If you could ask for anything from God, what would it be?
