Dubai is grand. Huge buildings, fast cars, giant malls, even great temperatures. (I'm still trying to get used to that last one.) People from all over the world come to Dubai to be wowed by all the many attractions. We live here and at times we can get used to this larger than life city. As grand as Dubai is, if we saw all Solomon had we would still be impressed!
Solomon seemed to have it all.
Land. Wealth. Influence. Gold. Wisdom. He was living large.
When life is going very well for Solomon, God appears to him and has an immensely important discussion...one of those conversations that are unmistakably important.
