Wisdom is Necessary

Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?

1 Kings 3:9 (ESV)

Whenever we find ourselves in a position of leadership, whether at work, church, or any other institution, we always believe that we possess the knowledge, wisdom, and authority to guide the people who lead us. direct. are entrusted. Some of us are so confident and proud of our position that we think we don't need advice from others. Usually, for many of us, it happens that we have failed miserably in fulfilling our duties.

Solomon was chosen by God to lead the people. Additionally, he knew he had his blessing to be king, but when the time came to make decisions regarding right and wrong, he did not act on his own, instead he turned to God to obtain the wisdom necessary to better guide his people. His wisdom showed when he solved a dilemma that no one else could have solved so well. He asked for a sword to divide a child in two so that each mother could have a portion. The real mother, instead of seeing her child perish, chose to give him to the other woman.

When you find yourself in a situation where you have to decide what is good or bad or what is acceptable and right, you must remember that wisdom is the key needed to make the right decision. Sometimes, as moral and ethical as we may be, we often lack wisdom in certain situations. The best thing we can do is ask God to give us an intelligent heart, like Solomon. We may not see or understand what God did and how He did it, but we will see the outcome every time we have to make a decision. Do not hesitate to turn to Him for this matter.

May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
