When Solomon, the son of the great warrior king, David, first sat on the throne of God’s chosen nation, Israel, he asked God for wisdom (2 Chronicles 1v7-12), and became the wisest man in the world (1 Kings 4v29-34). He studied, taught, judged and wrote. Kings, queens, and leaders from other nations would come to him to learn and gain understanding and insight.
Solomon, with his deep wisdom, royal title and vast wealth was in a unique position, unlike any who had come before him, or any who would follow, to try to unearth the meaning and purpose for our lives. It became his great quest, and he would spend his life trying to grasp the ultimate reason for life on earth. Sadly, most of his experiences and journeys would lead him to dead ends.
Near the end of his life, Solomon, now an old, grandfatherly figure, would sit down and take stock of all he had seen and experienced, and, with an attitude of humility and repentance, share his learnings with the next generation.
