Solomon had a dream.
Solomon loved the Lord and followed in King David, his father’s footsteps. David appointed Solomon to be the next king after he died.
The people had to go to high places to burn their offerings to the Lord. There was no house built to worship the Lord. Solomon built the first temple in Jerusalem, so that the people could worship and pray to God.
One evening Solomon had a dream. God spoke to Solomon and told him, that he could ask for anything and it will be given to him. Solomon asked for an understanding heart and the wisdom to judge the Lords people, that he may be able to tell good from evil.
God saw and was pleased that Solomon asked for wisdom and not for things such as a long life or money. God blessed him with riches and honor and also said that He would lengthen his days, if Solomon followed the Lord.
Meaning of the words
Wisdom: Is knowledge. To learn and become wise. Those who listen to God receive wisdom. To receive wisdom, is to read and learn the word of God.
Moral of the story
We are all different, but with God’s help we can all make a difference. We should also strive for honorable things in life, instead of earthly riches.
