It seems to take some of us quite a while to learn that if we don’t ask for what we need, we probably won’t ever get it. This makes sense in children who are trying to figure out how the world works but it makes less sense when you are well into adulthood and still don’t ask for what you need or want. I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me too much as it seems many of us never really saw this in action.
Our Old Testament lesson for today has someone asking for what they want. It is a well-known story, God asks Solomon what he wants. Solomon demonstrates significant self-knowledge when he asks for wisdom. So, the question I have for me and you is the sermon title, What would you ask for?
NOTE: this was our first service meeting in-person, or three dimensions as I like to put it, and we met in Wakamow Park in Moose Jaw so there is more ambient noise than usual. I hope you enjoy the occasional bird as much as I did. Let me know what you think and you are welcome to share what you would ask for if you would like.
