after all

Today’s readings: 1 Kings 3:3-4:34, Acts 6:1-15, Psalm 126:1-6, Proverbs 16:26-27

In today’s reading, we see the official beginning of Solomon’s wisdom. It’s only the official beginning, though… because he has already demonstrated wisdom twice. Once, in the choice he made which I pointed out in the last reading. And second, he demonstrated great wisdom in CHOOSING wisdom over riches or fame or power.

God rewards him with what he asked for… and he also rewards him with the things he didn’t ask for. Does that remind you of anything? It should… it sounds a lot like “seek first His kingdom and all these things will be added to you.”

Thank You, God, for rewarding us for choosing what’s best for us after all.
