The Wisdom of Solomon
I’d been hearing things about King Solomon. His fame was growing – his star on the rise. Supposedly, he was wealthy, successful and very wise. At first I wondered if reports of his wisdom and achievements were greatly exaggerated. If not, I had many questions to be answered. I decided to pay the king a personal visit to find out for sure.
My journey was long and perilous. During my travels I often missed the comfort and security of the palace, and yet, I marveled at the new and different sights around me as the caravan traveled to Jerusalem. Upon arrival, I immediately sought out King Solomon.
I am happy to report that tales of his great wisdom were not at all exaggerated! He had an answer for every question I asked. Nothing I posed was too complicated or confusing for the wise king.
As I toured his palace, I marveled at the abundance of food and servants attending him. My last stop on the tour was the temple Solomon had built for his Lord. I was awe-struck. I understood then that Solomon’s wisdom is a gift from his God. Praise be to the Lord!
My long journey was a huge success – success beyond what I’d even hoped for! I gave Solomon gold, spices and precious stones, but in return I received something worth far more than any earthly treasure.
Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.
The truth is out there; the quest to find it begins in the Word of God.
