This week we moved on from David as The Gospel Project takes us to David’s son Solomon. Solomon was the second son of Bathsheba and became the next king of Israel. Once David died, Solomon had a dream in which God told him to ask for anything he wanted. Solomon told God that he was a young man and that what he wanted most of all was the wisdom needed to be a good leader for Israel. God was pleased with Solomon’s request and granted it. God told Solomon because he had not asked for selfish desires, God also granted that Solomon would be rich, live a long life, and receive honor from others. God created people to do His will. Jesus provided for us the perfect example of doing God’s will when He willingly died on the cross for our sins.
