Today is Sunday! I'm loving it! I'm in I Kings, and have this truth:
SOLOMON'S WISDOM- In 1Ki 4:29, it says: "And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore."
Notice the three things that God gave Solomon: widom, understanding, and largeness of heart. He was wise and he cared. (He had a Big Heart) Sometimes smart people do not have a Big Heart, but just as God wants us wise, God wants us loving. A heart for God, and a heart for others! This is God's plan. The chapter continues to share Solomon's wisdom and accomplishments: 1Ki 4:30-34 "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 him such wonderful wisdom and he shared what he was given by God. But also, we see that he had a heart for God and a heart for people. Let us do the same with whatever God has blessed us with. Let us be wise, and have largeness of heart!
Blessings on you my friend! Pastor Mike Mutchler
