1 Kings 5: 6: “Now therefore, command that they cut for me cedars from Lebanon, and my servants will be with your servants; and I will give you wages for your servants according to all that you say, for you know that there is no one among us who knows how to cut timber like the Sidonians.” Do you want to know wisdom? Here it is. Solomon, in his strength and wealth, could have commanded Hiram to give him the timber. If Hiram refused he could have fought a long, bloody war and seized the trees. But Solomon, in his wisdom, just asked for the opportunity to buy, even complimenting Hiram in the process. He got what he wanted, without a costly war. So how many wise leaders are there among the nations today?
