Wisdom of Solomon (1 Kings 3:16-28)

Picture description:
The wise decision of Solomon
Picture copyright:V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers
Bible Verse:
People who are described as having the wisdom of Solomon are very wise.
Origin and Application:
King Solomon, son of David, walked in the path of God in the initial days of his reign. God appeared to King Solomon through a dream one night, and said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” (1 Kings 3:5). Given this opportunity of fulfilling his wish, King Solomon asked not for wealth, but for the wisdom to judge what was right and wrong. So God blessed him with great wisdom in administering justice. His wisdom can be shown in his famous ruling where two mothers were claiming parenthood for a baby, but only one was the authentic biological mother. King Solomon asked that the baby to be cut in half and shared by two mothers. The real mother, in a bid to save her son, would rather give her son to the other woman, while the false mother insisted on killing the baby. King Solomon arrived at the verdict that the first woman who pleaded not to kill was the real mother. This wise ruling was welcomed and highly regarded by all of Israel.
You need Solomon’s wisdom to solve this problem.
