A Tender Heart
1Ki 3:7 And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
1Ki 3:8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
1Ki 3:9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
Solomon's heart was tender at this time. God blessed his tender heart.
No wonder he said in his declining years, having tried everything else life had to offer, "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth."
It is too bad that so many have to stray so far, wasting so much time and talent, until they finally comeback to what they always knew, the God of their Fathers.
