Wisdom Shall Prevail
Proverbs 3:13-18 Happy is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding. For her (wisdom) proceeds are better than the profits of silver and her gain than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her. Length of days is in her right hand. In her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her. These words speak volumes. Solomon was blessed with wisdom beyond his years. He also had a very compassionate heart. His story of coming to be is so fascinating. It would take a whole two pages to write. Just note that his mother was a beautiful African queen. And his father the King of Israel with characteristics not unlike any of us today. God showed both parents favor. Solomon the king prevails with his writings of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Songs of Solomon in the bible. The above verses are just some among so many.
