A thought on ! Kings 3::9 Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?”
How wise was Solomon, even in his youth! God was willing to give this chosen, favored child, anything. And Solomon asked of the Lord only an understanding mind and to be able to discern between good and evil.
We are not that set apart as was Solomon but the Christian mind still wants the same thing as Solomon: We want as we live in this world. to be able to choose wisdom, It boils down to our being able to discern what God wishes for us (long life and eternity) and the the ability to live our lives choosing good more than choosing and doing evil.
We may not govern a large kingdom, but we daily make choices of how our family and ourselves govern the lives around us. An understanding mind will have a great effect on all we meet.
