Because your greatest desire is to help your people and you did not ask for wealth, riches, fame… I will certainly give you the wisdom and knowledge you requested. -2 Chronicles 1:11
Solomon knew that money would not make him a good leader in the long run. It might help him be admired, feared, even envied, but not respected. Wisdom is applying knowledge and experience with common sense and understanding, none of which can be bought.
However, with these skills, wealth, honor and success inevitably follow.
