What Are You Chasing In Life?
If you could have anything you wanted what would it be?
Interestingly enough God made that offer to a man named Solomon.
We find this in 1 Kings 3. Solomon’s father David has died and
Solomon has taken the throne. 1 Kings 3:3 says, “Solomon loved
the Lord….” but this verse also says he burned incense at the high
places. He wasn’t perfect. But in verse 5 of I Kings 3 God makes this
offer: “Ask! What shall I give you?” Now think about this for a minute
this is not just someone who is rich or powerful, this is the One True
God, the Creator of the Universe making the offer, everything is at His
disposal to give to Solomon. Again I ask, what would you or I ask for?
Well this is why Solomon is considered one of the wisest men of all.
Listen to what he ask for: “You have shown great mercy to Your servant
David my father, because he walked before You in truth, in righteousness,
and in uprightness of heart with You…” Then drop down to v. 8: Therefore,
give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may
discern between good and evil…” Wow! He didn’t ask for riches, he didn’t
ask for power, he asked for understanding to work with people. Because of
that God also gave him what he did not ask for, v. 13: “I have also given you
what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be
any like you among the kings all your days.”
God so much wants to bless, but sometimes we look for blessings in the
wrong places. Let’s surrender our lives to the will of God, let’s desire to help
people to discern between right and wrong. That can only be done on a consistent
basis when we use God’s Word as our standard.
As always appreciate comments.
We Were Put Here To Serve
Our goal this year is to reach out to our community and beyond. We want
to reach out to those who have served in our military, to struggling families,
to children who are struggling because of abuse or handicaps. God has
blessed us in so many ways we want to help others and let others see Christ
makes a difference in the world we live in. WE WERE PUT HERE TO SERVE.
In Mark 10:45, the Bible says,
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to
give His life a ransom for many.”
