About the study

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10

God appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and told him to ask for whatever he wanted. Pleased with his request for a discerning heart so he might govern well and distinguish between right and wrong, God gave him exceedingly deep insight, and understanding beyond measure.

Solomon’s great intellect is fully on display in the Old Testament wisdom books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon, but his fall from the heights of anointing by God to the depths of idolatry was cataclysmic. How did the man to whom God gave incomparable wealth, riches and fame, as well as matchless wisdom, come to build his house like a foolish man, not on a rock but on sand?

This 16-week study of the life and writings of Solomon will show us practical ways to live our lives with spiritual insight and discernment. We will also observe the perils of drifting into a life of disobedience that leads to cynicism and unbelief. God lets us choose our path: it is up to us to study God’s Word in order to choose wisely.
