We ask for a better job, more money, a new house, a new car… What about instead asking God to make us a better worker? Why not ask for the tools to be GREAT at what God has given us?
King Solomon wanted to rule his people properly, but instead of asking directly for power, or for obedient people, he asked for wisdom…. he asked for understanding, and the ability to discern between good and bad. And he became the richest man of his time. Money in itself does not bring happiness… Prosperity comes from seeking His Kingdom above all else, and then all else is given to us.
