Wisdom and happiness go together…
God gave Solomon wisdom- knowledge to order affairs, to invest, to be creative, to manage…
“The queen of Sheba was breathless with amazement at Solomon’s wealth, wisdom and organization. Not only did she marvel at the lavish manner of the temple ceremonies but she observed that even insignificant aspects of Solomon’s household and public affairs were in such order that his wives and servants were happy (1 Kings 10:4-8).” *
An outsider saw that Solomon’s household and all his affairs were successfully managed. They key? God’s wisdom.
Proverbs: 4:7 Wisdom is the principle, chief, main thing. Get wisdom (paraphrased)
Why is wisdom important? Since our own understanding is so limited we need help- wisdom from God.
May the wisdom of God and the mind of Christ be your portion….
