1 Kings 3:9 NKJV
Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
King Solomon did not consider himself smart enough to handle the task of judging the nation he was called to serve. He prayed to God for an understanding heart. It would do us all good to humble ourselves when we have a task in front of us that involves other people. Instead of assuming we know what to do because of our credentials or experience, we should recognize that each human being is unique and only God could understand them perfectly. Therefore whatever we think we could do well when it comes to handling people, with God’s help we can do so much better.
Prayer: Lord, give us an understanding heart to help us with our interactions with precious human beings you created and gave your life for, that we may do the best job in dealing with them.
