I have taken a little hiatus from writing my blog. The reason I have stopped writing is that I have been considering my content. I received a negative comment about one of my blogs. My blog was taken totally out of context. The person who commented thought that I promoted violence against Jews. All I was doing was quoting the Scripture about an experience in David's life.
Anyway, I have taken the time off to think about my approach. I have taken the time off to consider my audience. Sermon Audio gives a simple little preacher from the Mountains of Eastern Kentucky an opportunity to be exposed to a world wide audience. This is a lot to take in for me. I am accustomed to pastoring my little church here in the mountains. I had not thought about how others around the world might view what I was saying. Anyway, after much consideration, I am beginning again my daily blog.
Today, Soloman judges wisely. He considers the accusations of the two mothers. He finds an answer for a situation which had no answer. There were no witnesses to be able to defend either mother. God blessed Soloman with great wisdom.
Proverbs 4:7 says,
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Wisdom is the principal thing. Yet it seems many have forgotten to use wisdom or seek wisdom in our society today. Instead of utilizing the wisdom of experience, many seem to be reactionary. Instead of considering the long lasting repercussions of decisions; we react to the short term.
We would be much better off if we would act in wisdom instead of reaction. Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. If you lack wisdom, seek it from God. He will provide.
Soloman is known as the wisest man to ever life. Why? Because he received wisdom from God. He acted based upon that wisdom. Maybe we should learn a lesson from Soloman and seek wisdom from above.
