Pleasing God

Sermon text: 1 Kings 3:4-10

Early in his reign as king of Israel, Solomon saw God in a dream. God asked Solomon what He could give the new king. Solomon’s response is the basis of this sermon on pleasing God. We please God when we appreciate His love and mercy. He is pleased when we practice genuine humility. When we recognize our place in His plan, He is pleased. And finally, we please Him when we realize our need for Him. None of us are likely to become a king like Solomon, but the principles from the focal passage work for us today.
