I Kings 3:9-10 Give me and understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. for who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?" The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for wisdom.
It goes on to tell us in verse 14 that God also gave Solomon riches and fame because Solomon asked for wisdom... wisdom is important in our lives!... wisdom of what God wants for our lives... God wants us constantly learning and growing... the wiser we are, the smarter we are the more creditability we have with others... the more opportunity we have to advance God's Kingdom. When we are then wise enough to give God the credit for the wonderful things in our lives other people see how good God is and want what we have..it gives us a chance to be a witness for God...and that makes God happy.
