TODAY’S SPECIAL: 1 Kings 3:1-15
TO CHEW ON: “At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, ‘Ask! What shall I give you?'” 1 Kings 3:5
I love this story! How can one help but be drawn to a king who has the humility to admit, ‘I don’t know how to do this’? How many times hasn’t a similar cry come from my lips, perhaps yours too?
We can learn some lessons for our lives from Solomon’s encounter with God.
