Day Ten

1 Kings 3:16 (ESV)
Then two prostitutes came to the king and stood before him.
This passage is the well-known, disturbing and profound story of the wise king Solomon discerning which woman is the true mother of the infant. His decision to use the sword reveals the true mother. The one who loves the child is willing to give up the child, so it might live. The one who does not love the child is willing for it to die, to satisfy some sick kind of vengeance and “justice.” That act of sacrificial love by the first woman reveals the truth!
John 3:16 also reveals truth through a sacrificial act of love. For God so loved the world that He gave up His one and only Son so that the world might be saved! The Evil one who does not love us, wants a sick kind of vengeance that allows evil and sin to continue. That act of sacrificial love by our God reveals the truth! For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him!
Have you ever had to make a difficult decision? What happened?
Did you seek wisdom from God? Why or why not?

How might we seek God’s wisdom in different situations?

Ask for forgiveness from someone you have wronged.
