Solomon Asked for Wisdom

This week we pick up our journey through the big story of the Bible with God inviting King Solomon, David’s son, to ask Him for whatever he wanted. Did you catch that? He could ask God for anything! Solomon could have chosen riches, or power, or waffles…but he did not. He asked God for wisdom so he could lead God’s people well. God was pleased with Solomon’s request and granted it and also blessed Solomon in other ways.

Solomon was a king who wanted to participate in God’s plan. God planned to give His people a greater and wiser king—His Son, Jesus. Jesus left his throne and came to us to die on the cross for our sin. Jesus is a good King!

This week, you can help your kids understand that true wisdom comes from God. Teach them that God wants us to know Him, love Him and trust Him. Two ways we can do that are by talking to God and reading the Bible. This can help us understand God better and live with wisdom. Use the suggestions below to begin appropriate conversations at home and review truths learned in the Antioch Kids classroom on Sunday:

Babies and Toddlers:
God knows everything.
King Solomon asked God to make him wise.
God gave Solomon wisdom to lead God’s people.
When Jesus lived on earth, He was wiser than Solomon.

Preschoolers:

Elementary Kids:
