Renungan harian alkitab, 1 kings 3, senin , ” given what you have not asked, diberi hal yang bahkan tidak diminta”

1 Kings 3:10-13 (NKJV)  The speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.

Then God said to him: “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice,

behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.

And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.

Ketika hati kita benar dan tidak meminta demi ambisi dan kepuasan diri, Tuhan akan memberikan segala sesuatu secara berkelimpahan, lebih dari yang kita minta.

Raja Salomo tidak meminta kekayaan atau kehormatan kejayaan, ia meminta hikmat agar bisa berfungsi maksimal sebagai pemimpin, tapi Tuhan memberikan semuanya! Ditambahkan kekayaan dan kejayaan baginya.

Banyak orang memohon berdoa, agar Tuhan memberkati mereka dengan kekayaan dan kejayaan, Tuhan tidak memberkati mereka, karena mereka hanya hidup bagi diri sendiri, self center life.

Salomo tidak egois, ia meminta karunia untuk ia melayani sebagai raja yang adil dan bijaksana.
Para pembaca terkasih, demikianlah rahasia karakter manusia,dan sikap Tuhan terhadap hati manusia, saya berdoa agar para pembaca menangkap pewahyuan ini.
