Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Let God be God (Biblical Theology)
The critical need: Live life with God’s wisdom 1 Kings 3: 5-15
If you could have anything you wanted, what would you choose? This is the very thing God asked of Solomon. Solomon asked for wisdom and a discerning heart. He put aside the desire for worldly wealth and fame in order to know God more. A wise decision and godly priorities in life bring blessing. Jesus put it this way: ‘Seek first the kingdom of God and all these other things will be added to you.’
