|Today I have a compelling case study for you as we continue looking at how to develop Heavenly treasures right here on earth! Solomon had been chosen as the successor of King David, the great king of Israel. When Solomon was transitioning as king, God visited him with the following statement: “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” Solomon asked for wisdom, one of the most valuable heavenly treasures.
Solomon’s request for wisdom makes me wonder if God was surprised. God told him that He would give him wisdom because he didn’t ask for material blessings, money, or even the defeat of his enemies. Not only did God make him the wisest person in the world, but He also granted Solomon money, victory, and defeat of his enemies. Those magnificent promises were fulfilled.
Friend, Scripture tells us that Solomon became incredibly wealthy, powerful, and healthy. As an achiever, he built one of the greatest temples in human history, the temple King David wanted to build but was not able to. Solomon’s wisdom was sought after by great queens, kings, and leaders from around the world. In many ways, everything he shared with them helped and benefited them. Today you can make this your aim to not only grow in heavenly treasures but to share your heavenly treasures with others, to the benefit of all mankind!
