That's what the Lord asked King Solomon in a dream (1 Kings 3).
"Ask what I should give to you."
And guess what Solomon asked for? Wisdom. He asked for a wise and discerning (knowing) heart/spirit in order to discern between good and evil and right from wrong. He asked for insight and understanding. And because he asked so unselfishly and because he loved the Lord so much (at this point in his life), the Lord gave him all he asked for plus wealth and honor. God was so impressed that Solomon didn't ask for long life, riches, or for God to do away with his enemies, that He blessed Solomon abundantly. He had a meek spirit and God gave Him much more, because of it. Solomon was so grateful for the blessings God gave him and his father, King David (before David died), that he was willing to be inconvenienced to help others, so much so, that he asked for wisdom.
I wonder how many of us would have asked for that?
