Daily D – 1 Kings 10:23-24
1 Kings 10:23, 24 King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. The whole world sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.
What did the people of Solomon’s day want from him, the richest man alive? They wanted to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart. People who walk closely with God attract others who want to know and experience God.
Here’s a convicting question to ponder: What do people want from you?
This question has been working its way into my soul this morning. Here is another to accompany it: How should I adjust my life so that people come to me more in search of the wisdom God has put in my heart?
Here is a simple plan to move me in the right direction:
Step one: Spend more time alone with God day by day.
Step two: Listen deeply to what God says.
Step three: Do what he says.
Step four: Help others learn how to hear and obey God.
There are likely other important steps to take. These are a good start in the right direction. I trust God will make the next steps clear as I take these steps as life-giving habits.
I will get to know and experience God through intentional encounters day by day and moment by moment.
Our Father, I want to know you and experience you and to help others do the same. Give me ears to hear what you are saying to me day by day and moment by moment. Give me a willing and obedient heart to do whatever you say when you say it. Give me the kind of life that overflows with your goodness and grace into the lives of others. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
