Listen...to the words of the Scripture, and in them discover God's message for you today.
Look...at a brief verbal snapshot from the scrapbook of contemporary life and discover its connection both to you and to the Scripture passage.
Live...inside the Scripture to discover its context and message; then allow the Scripture to come alive in you and cause you to live out your faith in new and more-effective ways.

In Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, “Huck” talks of some of his early religious training at the hands of “Miss Watson”: “Miss Watson she took me in the closet and prayed, but nothing come of it. She told me to pray every day, and whatever I asked for I would get it. But it warn’t so. I tried it. Once I got a fishline, but no hooks. It warn’t any good to me without hooks. I tried for the hooks three or four times, but somehow I couldn’t make it work. By-and-by, one day, I asked Miss Watson to try for me, but she said I was a fool. She never told me why, and I couldn’t make it out no way.”1
In our Bible Lesson, King Solomon showed a little more wisdom (on this occasion anyway) than did Huck. The Lord said to Solomon, “Ask what I should give you” (1 Kings 3:5). Solomon did not ask for long life, riches, or the lives of his enemies. Instead he asked for the wisdom to govern the people justly. The result was that God gave Solomon not only the wisdom he sought but also riches, honor, and long life.
