How do you judge what's right and what's wrong? Sometimes it depends on the circumstances, and sometimes you need help.

1 Kings 3:5, 7-12. Solomon prays for wisdom, which means the ability “to distinguish right from wrong.” God gives him such an ability, which seems to be in short supply, since there is “no one to equal” Solomon in this regard!

Psalm of the Day:  Ps (118) 119
The great psalm (longest in the Book of Psalms) in praise of the Torah, which Israel considered God's greatest covenant gift—a guide to determining what is right and wrong.

Suggested Common Psalm:  Ps (18) 19
Lord, You Have the Words

Romans 8:28-30. God has a plan for creation, and those who are called to believe in Jesus are a key part of that plan.

Matthew 13:44–52. The first two parables actually tell the stories of two people who cheat to gain great fortunes: the first by disguising what is found in a field and the second by using “insider trading” to gain a fabulous pearl. The parable of the net is like the parable of the wheat and weeds (used last Sunday): Good and bad fish are collected, and they are not sorted until the fishing expedition is over.
