A good lesson in life is that wisdom, as great as it is, does not equal goodness. It is true that Solomon was wise but he used it for good and evil. The infamous story of baby slicing is a great example of wisdom being put to good use, but the death of Shimei and Joab were examples of how his creative thinking were examples of evil. Are you wise? We are going to see that Solomon’s wisdom might just hurt as much as it helps. The apple never falls too far from the tree!
