Solomon was King David’s son. God blessed Solomon with great wisdom and people from all the lands came to hear him. This reminds us of the three wise men who traveled from faraway lands to see Jesus. Solomon built the temple that his father, King David, wanted. This was a beautiful place for God’s people to pray. With all his wisdom Solomon became very rich and powerful. Sadly, he forgot that God gave him his wisdom and he turned away from God. When Jesus came, even though He was tempted by the devil, He always obeyed God. So, unlike Solomon, Jesus is the perfect, wise king.
