The book of the wise King. The wisdom of Solomon gives us an insight on the rules if you will, of leadership, wisdom and understanding. Following the righteous path that God wants all to follow. Unfortunately man has been his own enemy back then as he is now. When leaders are put in place to forge forward for the people and by the people it is a happy combination. But when greed, dishonor, lets just say any and all of the seven sins are involved it is a disaster. A train wreck ready to happen. If we use the bible as a reference manual, it gives us direction on what to do in these desperate times. God has prevailed all of these years. Man has not been wiped completely out yet. Believe me science has nothing on God. So believe that this too shall pass. Do your very best to survive in the humblest way. In the end the disobedient. The sinners. Will be looking to the humble man for direction.
The Wisdom of Solomon 1:12-16
Seek not death in the error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction with the works of your hands.
13 For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living.
14 For he created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth:
15 (For righteousness is immortal:)
16 But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to nought, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.
