What Would You Ask For?

At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”—1 Kings 3:5 (NIV)

“The trouble with most prayers is that they aren’t big enough,” said Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. In the above verse, God asked Solomon for whatever he wanted. If He asked you the same question what would your response be? Would you ask for wisdom? Wealth? Happiness?

Heavenly Father, what I want most, more than any earthly possession or pleasure, is to know and follow You.
