“Wisdom and Wealth”

What would you ask for; if the Lord God said, He would give to you whatever you ask?

For many, we would think of physical treasures, whatever that might be. Perhaps we would ask for a new car, a new house, and 10 million dollars.

Please read the following verses

2 Chronicles 1:7-12
7 That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”
8 Solomon answered God, “You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. 9 Now, Lord God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. 10 Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
11 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, 12 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.”

Now I do not know this for sure, but if Solomon asks for all kinds of riches, perhaps that is all he gets.

However, since he asks the Lord for wisdom, the Lord gives him riches too.

Believers continue to remember, this world is not my home, I am just a passing through.

Desire the things of the Lord God and watch Him work through His believers.
