         "The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge
          for the ears of the wise seek it out."
                                                                                                       Proverbs 18:15 (NIV)

                        - King Solomon knew it would be good for him to ask God 
                           for wisdom and 
He knew that God's 
                            and His knowledge were the best.  You can ask God, too!
                                                       (read in 2 Chronicles 1:10-12)
