The Bible doesn't tell us how old Solomon was when he became the king of Israel, but we can surmise that he was very young. He realized right away that he would need wisdom to lead the people and made his request known to God. The Lord then answered in a big way. Through this lesson, your students will learn about King Solomon’s early years and see the wisdom he acquired in action. They will also discover that God wants to give them what they ask for when their requests are made with a sincere heart and for the right reasons.
