She was searching for wisdom. She was looking for the truth like it was silver and searching for it like it was hidden treasure.
The Queen of Sheba took a dangerous journey of 1200 miles on camels through a hot desert to check out the wisdom of King Solomon. She came prepared with some hard questions. And she was awed by the wisdom in his answers.
As we read and memorize Proverbs, we are being presented with this same wisdom.
dealing with fools,
the value of wise advice,
love and compassion,
pride and humility,
wise and foolish talking,
slander and gossip,
wealth and poverty,
and more. (Did you notice one that I mentioned more than once? :))
We know that all of Solomon’s wisdom came from God.
And that wisdom is available to us as we cry aloud for it, as we store it up in our minds and as we apply it to our hearts.
Thank you, Abba Father.
