So King Solomon became richer and wiser than any other king on earth. —I Kings 10:23
“The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom; and now something greater than Solomon is here.” —Luke 11:31
People came from the “ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom.” He was wiser than any king on earth, but Jesus said, “Something greater than Solomon is here.” People should have flocked to Jesus who is Wisdom and so much more! — “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption” (I Corinthians 1:30). They should flock to Him today. Indeed there is nome like the Lord Jesus Christ… none! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnhUh2tt97Q
We are to get wisdom—
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7).
“How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! (Proverbs 16:6).
“Buy the truth and do not sell it– wisdom, instruction and insight as well” (Proverbs 23:23).
“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).
Yes, people flocked to Solomon from great distances. Do you and I flock to Jesus? Are we running to Him who has all wisdom because He is Wisdom? Why wouldn’t we? “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” (Matthew 17:5). Yes, may we listen to Him and obey (John 14:21). May it be so! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkHqaBxPoAM
