TITLE: PURE WISDOM IS LIKE PURE HONEY

TEXT: 1 Kings 4: 29-34
KEY VERSE: 1 Kings 4: 29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceedingly much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.’’
Solomon’s wisdom excelled that of others because it was divinely given. Pure wisdom is like pure honey, not mixed with sugar. He was wiser than all men. Amen. God can give wisdom to a man above the wisdom of all men on the earth. You can be that man. If Solomon sees a tree and speaks a proverb concerning it, you will wonder at the great wisdom displayed. If Solomon sees an ant crawling and speaks a word relating it to affairs of mankind, you will be amazed at the pure wisdom manifested. If Solomon sees birds flying in the air, the story he will bring out of it, you will just wonder. Solomon! Nothing but God gave you this understanding and wisdom.
Wisdom is that which makes your utterance sweet, nice, decorated, virtuous, such that everybody is interested to hear from you. The queen of Sheba gave a marvellous testimony concerning Solomon. The power of wisdom; the grace of wisdom; the sweetness of wisdom; the delights of wisdom made his words delicious; makes his presence pleasant. Wisdom is the principal thing. Get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding. Wisdom will make you get at the right scripture and use the scripture at the appropriate time.
Wisdom will give you the meaning of those scriptures, applying them to situations exactly as salt put in the soup, not too much and not too little, gives the soup the right taste. Keeping God’s commandments makes me wiser than my enemies. Thy commandments are always with me like the medicine that clears sicknesses away from my body. Wisdom is not proud, rough or boastful. If you compromise to achieve success through bribery and corruption or immorality, then glory not and lie not against the truth. You have no testimony.
Thought for the day: Wisdom is the ability to understand human behaviour and know what to say, what not to say, what to do and what not to say and do.
Song for the day: I love that man of Galilee…
Bible reading for the day: Job 7-9; Acts 7:44-60
