In this message, Pastor Bogdan Kipko focuses on what wisdom looks like when it is on full display. What happens when wisdom reigns? We believe that when you get wiser, everyone wins. In this text, the occasion of Solomon’s famous demonstration of discernment is a legal case involving two prostitutes living in the same house who both claim a particular newborn child as their own. The identity of the true mother, the one who gives up her child out of love, is thus revealed to Solomon, and Solomon is revealed to his subjects as one who has wisdom from God to administer justice.
What can we personally learn from this display of wisdom and how can we also demonstrate wisdom in our own lives? Is it really possible to make wise decisions? What happens though, when we do all that we can to make the right decision, but then we experience the wrong result in our life? Where is the hope for weary, exhausted people, who can't seem to keep a consistent streak going wherein they make correct decisions? Throughout this story, we will learn that the good news of Christianity is not that you get a better life because you've made all the correct decisions but rather that you get the Author of Life, Jesus, in spite of your bad decisions.
Let's get ready to find hope in Jesus, by listening to this message.
