Homily given at the 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, July 27, 2014, the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. When God offered Solomon anything he wanted, Solomon, who was in love with God, selflessly asked for wisdom to govern the people. But he made a series of choices that eventually led him into bitterness and the people into idolatry. We have to not only start well, but end well. We need to yield to wisdom, to take full advantage of all that God gives us, and to stay focused on Jesus.
