So God replied, “Because you have asked for wisdom in governing my people with justice and have not asked for a long life or wealth or the death of your enemies—I will give you what you asked for! I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have! And I will also give you what you did not ask for—riches and fame!
Insight: So often our prayers can become somewhat selfish and self-centered. God wants to pour his favor on us but he also wants us to not get so wrapped up in ourself that we miss the big picture.
Prayer: God, help me to focus my prayers more on others and not my own needs, wants, and desires.
