1 Kings- 3:13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

Solomon could have chosen Honor and Fame but he did not. There are many stories of men who were honored by men but were rejected by God.

Belshazzar was a great leader but he saw the handwriting on the wall that said, "Thou has been weighed in the balance and found wanting." He was so scared the Bible says that "his knees smote one against the other." He did not see another sun rise because he died that night.

The scribes and pharisees sought recognition and honor but Jesus called them "Vipers and hypocrites." Solomon desired the recognition of God more than men.

If we seek wisdom we too will seek to please God instead of man. with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
