God's Continual Kindness

God said to Solomon, “Ask! What shall I give you?” Before Solomon answered, listen to him acknowledge why God had made him king, “You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in truth, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day” (1 Kings 3:6).
Solomon had a heart full of pure humility. He knew that God made Solomon king not because of his own righteousness, but because of the righteousness of his father David. The rest of Solomon’s answer to God shows great humility, and God blessed the new king for it.
Regardless of who you are, and regardless of what you have done and can do, never forget the great virtue of humility.
