The Wishing Game. Did you ever play it? I did. As kids we used to play the wish game asking that question, “If you could make one wish, what would it be?”

I would stay quiet while others said things like, lots of money, a big house, or a motorcycle. Then I’d say, “I’d wish for unlimited wishes!” I felt so smart, but looking back it simply revealed incredible selfishness.

God said to King Solomon, “Ask whatever you wish Me to give you.” Solomon chose “wisdom to lead and discernment between good and evil.” God was pleased, knowing he could have asked for wealth or long life. So God granted his wish and a wealthy, long life.

Asking God for wisdom is a wise request indeed, for so often with wisdom comes great success and the respect of others. The world is drawn to people who are wise. Remember, God and His Word are the best sources of wisdom.
