The God-given wisdom of Solomon attracted the nations to Jerusalem to hear him. He was considered the wisest man on earth. But Solomon ultimately succumbed to a lust for riches, sex, and power. Yet, in his early years, he was a foreshadowing of Jesus, the Son of David, Son of God, who is the Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Cor.1:24). We catch a glimpse of God’s purposes in the early days of Solomon’s reign, but the fulfillment is in Christ. One day, all the nations will recognize Him as King of kings and Lord of lords, as the very wisdom of God displayed.
