1 Kings 4:29 “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. 30 And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. 31 For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about. 32 And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. 33 And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. 34 And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.”
God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond anyone on earth. Because Solomon didn’t ask for riches, God made him the richest man that ever lived. The bible says that he kept the gold inside the walled city and dumped the silver on the ground outside the wall. His guards were dressed better than most kings. Solomon wrote Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon. Wisdom is far better than riches. Solomon said that we are to enjoy the works of our hands for it is the gift of God. He saw the world differently. He saw the world as God sees it. The word of God reveals the thoughts and intents of the heart. That is what Solomon saw. It is what we need in our lives the live this life on earth. We are here to accomplish God’s will on the earth.
James1: 5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
