Solomon's Wisdom (Cartoon 54)

That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you." Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of your?" God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, riches or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, riches and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have." 2 Chronicles 1:7-12

He could have had it all, and he did. Can you imagine being given a blank check signed by God Himself. Preapproved for any amount, this check would never be stampted, INSUFFICIENT FUNDS. All Solomon had to do was make the request. He chose wisdom; which shows Solomon had a certain amount of wisdom even before he asked for more. God was so pleased with Solomon's choice that he gave him the things which he didn't ask for. Wisdom is the ingredient that helps us to make right choices in life. How do we get it? Just ask, the check is already signed by God himself.

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. James 1:5
