Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: 1 Kings 3

Key Verse: 1 Kings 3:7-9 7 ‘Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?’

Last week we saw from psalm 27 that the one thing that David sought after was to know God and live his life before God’s presence. At the beginning of King Solomon’s reign we also see how he answers this question when God approaches him, in a dream, ‘Ask for whatever you want me to give you.’ King Solomon saw his weakness and so asked that God might ‘give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?’

In this life we need wisdom to judge between truth & error, good & evil. The Bible tells us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom because when we fear Him we will listen and obey His word, resulting in eternal life.In this life we need wisdom to judge between truth & error, good & evil.
