We all know about the wisdom of Solomon, and how he asked God for this gift above all others. In yesterday’s reading we saw how his fame had spread to the Queen of Sheba, so great was his wisdom.
All that fame, renown, and acclaim must have gone to his head, for we read today, in 1 Kings 11, that he turned away from God and ended up displeasing the very One who had given him such a tremendous gift. Not a very smart move!
We are all given gifts and talents, and we must practice so as not to lose them.
Let us cultivate
gratitude . . .
Please add to the list.
