When Solomon began as king, God asked him what he wanted. Solomon said that since he was just a kid, “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad.”
God is pleased with this answer and makes Solomon the wisest man who ever lived. I have heard many people say that Solomon showed great wisdom in asking for wisdom! Where did Solomon get the idea to ask for wisdom?
From his dad! Before David dies he says to Solomon, “Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel.”
Solomon knew he needed wisdom because his dad told him he did! His mom probably just told him, “Hey, Solly, you’re super-duper.”
I have no major point. Just thought that was interesting. Dads rock.
