The cover art this week depicts the dream of Solomon, related in our Old Testament lesson from the Book of Kings. God asks him what he desires and his request is selfless: to have the wisdom to govern justly. In a way, by asking for this he shows that he is already wise. We might ask God to grant us something of the wisdom of Solomon: to desire that which is best for others.
