King Solomon's Wisdom

King Solomon received a gift from the Lord, the gift of being wise.
He was able to use his great wisdom to see through people's lies.
When a woman stole a baby, she told King Solomon to cut him in two.
The other lady begged Solomon to give the baby to the thief and he knew that was what the true mother would do.
Perhaps God has given as much wisdom to some others because only he can.
If I only had ten percent of King Solomon's wisdom, I would be a better man.

The wisdom of Solomon has been told through the ages and was a popular saying when I was very young. I wish some of our leaders would be endowed with the gift. Nice work.

Great encapsulation of a great story, Randy. I agree with you. I could use some of that wisdom also from time to time :-))
