“Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” (Pro 8:10-11) “I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment.” (Pro 8:20)
If God were to ask you as he asked Solomon “Ask what I shall give thee” (1 Kings 3:5) would your reply be selfless as Solomon’s answer? Have you ever thought about it? Do you know what Solomon’s answer was to God? “And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude. Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.” (1 Kings 3:7-12) “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Mt 6:21)
