God: "If you could have one thing in the world, what would you want?"
King Solomon: "I don't know yet how to be a king. I'm Your servant, but I also serve a great nation. I would have wisdom, understanding, and discernment so that I can lead Your people better."
God: "You made the perfect choice! You did not ask for your own health, for more money, or for more and more power - you asked for a gift for the public good. So, I will make it so."
Never was there such a leader, nor will there be again.
