Wisdom - 1 Kings 3

Solomon becomes the wisest of all human kings.  Why?  He asks for wisdom from the right source - God.  He asks for wisdom for the right reason - so he could lead God's people well.  It has been said that the difference between knowledge and wisdom looks like this: Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit and wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.  Wisdom is knowing what to do with the knowledge we have.  True wisdom comes from God as you can read about in the book of Proverbs.  

Unfortunately, Solomon didn't always act with ultimate wisdom. Read 1 Kings 11 and you will see the heart-breaking account of the 'wisest of all human kings' fall into a mess.  He begins to trust in his own strength, power and craftiness.  Why is it that we can be so wise in some areas of our life and so dull in others?  Why does it seem that we can have a faith to move mountains in one way and be as timid and fearful as a mouse in another?  Where do you need to seek The Lord's wisdom in our life?
