1 Kings 3:4-13
Psalm 119: 9-14
Mark 6: 30-34
Ask something of me and I will give it to you.- 1Kings Chapter 3:4
Let us assume this day in your room, God suddenly appear to you in a gentle fire and amidst all of this, he asked you this question; “Ask something of me and I will give it to you”. What would your answer be? Would you ask for wealth? Good health? The head of those you deemed your enemies? What would you really ask for?
In all, Solomon showed us this day in the first reading, that one thing is the most important, and that’s what God commended Solomon for; to discern between good and evil. For to know this, is to know the heart of God and follow in his ways.
So, for this day, May we always chose what’s dear to God’s heart, so as to enjoy the riches and blessing he has for us.
May God grant us the wisdom always to choose what is right and flee from evil, we ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
