Points to Ponder – What would your wish be

In the Bible, I Kings 3, a man by the name of Solomon asks God for wisdom.

Rev. KW Boyd Tremblett

Chemainus Pentecostal Church

If you were granted one wish, what would that wish be?

Reviewing some sights on the internet this is what people have said:

Money and no more debt

Unlimited wishes

To go back in time

Health

World peace

Perfect soul mate

To live forever

To be taller, skinnier, tanned, muscular

To be better at school, sport, job, etc.

The list could go on and on.

And if you are anything like me, I’m sure you thought, probably every time a lottery commercial came on, what you would do with the big jackpot.

The column in this paper is called Word for the Wise. Every website I looked at for what people wished for, not one person asked for wisdom.

In the Bible, I Kings 3, a man by the name of Solomon asks God for wisdom.

I am not saying God is a genie, nor should we treat him that way.

But God is there to grant us the desires of our hearts (Psalms 37:4). And in the wisdom that God gave him, he was known as the wisest man that ever lived. God used him in mighty ways and we can still read about him today.

So, today what would be your one wish?

My words to the wise today is make your wishes (or prayers) for what God desires for us, and that we would ask God for salvation, for ourselves and family and friends.
