Who did Solomon take as a wife?
Did God give Solomon great wisdom, yes or no?
How many Proverbs did Solomon speak?
LESSON: Solomon had great wisdom and it was God who gave it to him. When you stop and think about it, without God, there is no wisdom. Seek God and His wisdom today.
PRAYER: God, grant unto me a portion of the wisdom You gave Your servant Solomon. Amen.
A TIMELY REMINDER FROM LOT

Nearly everyone had heard of Lot. Not because of who Lot was, or anything he did, but because of the stupendous manner of the passing of his wife. As we know, she looked back on her way out of Sodom and she turned into a pillar of salt. The circumstances surrounding Lot are will known. Lot was given a choice and he chose the lush, fertile plains of Jordan. Lot pitched his tent toward Sodom, and we know what happened to Sodom. So, the question arises, "How did this just and righteous man, Lot, come to trouble and loss?" Whatever some people may think, there was nothing wrong in Lot choosing prime grazing land for his cattle, or in seeking to locate his property away from the rugged hills and the attendant hazards and threats associated. In truth, this was a case of a man looking for the best for the present instead of looking to the future and weighing the pros and cons of what impact his choice would have on his family. His family paid for the unwise decisions that he made as the head of the family.
I wonder how many people will reflect on Lot's circumstances and still not see the larger picture before their eyes. "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness..." is still the most effective solution to stop us making poor, wretched choices.
