We read yesterday about how Solomon followed in his father David's footsteps as King of Israel. Today we read about how Solomon first met God and how that meeting shaped much of his rule. When we think about David, we often think about stories of bravery like his fight with Goliath. We also think about Psalms like the 23rd Psalm. When we think about Solomon, we usually think about wisdom. Tradition associates him with much of the Book of Proverbs and with Ecclesiastes. This story is the root of Solomon's great wisdom. It's also a reminder to ask God for what we need for the ministries to which God calls us.
