An Understanding Heart.
“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 day thy so great a people.” 1 Kings 3:9.(KJV).
Solomon asked God for an understanding heart.
God gave him wisdom as well.
Why is an understanding heart so important?
When you understand something, you can make better decisions.
Was it necessary for you to be so upset with what your friend did to you?
You may even agree with your friend if you understand the actions’ reasons.
If your friend does not feel well, you may have more patience.
You are also able to differentiate between good and bad.
Pray to God for better understanding.
Empathize rather than judge.
Put Yourself in That Person’s Shoes.
The Holy Spirit can help you.
Whenever you ask HIM.
Application to the Christian life:
Be more understanding.
Daily Learn From Jesus.
