Love and justice

The wisdom of Solomon was renowned in Bible times. Such wisdom is still available and from the same source—God.

"Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?" I Kings 3:9.

This cry to God, attributed to Solomon, could just as easily be uttered by the manager of a business, a teacher, an administrator, a parent—any individual supervising or caring for others. Solomon is an interesting example of an executive who had to make decisions during momentous times. He made some good decisions and also some very poor ones. Nevertheless, in this early turning to God for wisdom, he certainly recognized a key point: the value of people.
