Read 1 Kings 3:5 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: If God told you that you could have anything in the world, what would you ask for?
Parent Note: We’d all probably be tempted to ask God for fun things, or maybe even more wishes, but that is what makes Solomon’s answer so special. While Solomon did ask for something for himself, he asked for something that would benefit all the people in his kingdom.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, You made Solomon very wise.
Help us to be wise and to follow You and love You more than anything else.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
