Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 11/260: Read Luke 11

How impressive was Solomon’s wisdom? Jesus said that the queen of Sheba “came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon.”

She was floored by what she heard and told the king, “It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. However I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes; and indeed the half was not told me. Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the fame of which I heard” (1 Kings 10:6-7).

How much more impressive is Jesus’ wisdom? And yet, how often do we disregard His counsel? If an important leader was willing to travel many miles to hear Solomon, how much more willing should we be to go to great lengths to learn and apply the teachings of the Lord?

Throughout the New Testament, we learn how Jesus is superior to all those who came before Him. Abraham, Moses, Solomon, and Elijah all had weaknesses, but Jesus is the perfect, sinless Son of God. There is no weakness in Christ, only strength. We should turn to Him and learn from Him above all others who came before or since.

Memory (Read aloud 5-10 times)

Luke 12:15, And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”

Pray

Pray for wisdom and for strength in learning from Christ’s wisdom. Pray that you may always rely on God’s Word as the final word on any subject.
