Demonstrating true wisdom

Who would not desire such wisdom as the Bible attributes to Solomon? Faced with the responsibility of reigning over Israel, Solomon prayed, "Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad." I Kings 3:9. This unselfed desire—prayer—was and is the beginning of wisdom demonstrated. Have we prayed to God for wisdom to "discern between good and bad"?

Ideally, each of us desires to make positive, wise decisions. But in the process of arriving at correct solutions, quite often we find that the proper course of action is not so easily defined, especially when we have to choose from several options. Like Solomon we must ask God for guidance—seek the divine Mind as the source of all right ideas and actions.
