The Lord knows what makes each of His children happy. He knows what we will appreciate.
He knew that Solomon would appreciate riches, honor and long life. So He blessed him with those very things after Solomon sought out the desires of his heart: receiving wisdom so that he could rightly judge God’s people.
We should be living to see God glorified in our life. Our daily motive should be to make Christ known.
Our effort shouldn’t be put towards work for the temporal blessings that we would enjoy.
God will just bless us with those if He is the treasure we are seeking.
Live your life for God and He will give you a life you enjoy living.
