Let me just say right off the bat that a guy can’t have a terribly insightful spiritual thought every day, at least not one he’s willing to share with everyone.
Upon saying that, the thought in my head today is about Solomon. I just read about him in 1 Kings, the bit about the 700 wives and 300 concubines.
I don’t think any man has read that and not thought, “Solomon is the wisest man who ever lived? Seriously?” Probably one of the biggest challenges to my faith in God’s Word comes from this fact.
Furthermore, Solomon lived quite a while, he was king for 40 years. I’m just wondering what all these wives and concubines did all day, especially as they got up into their 70’s and 80’s. A thousand 80 year old women, sitting around.
Is this where the game of Bridge was invented? There was probably some Jewish guy who set up a shop next to the palace selling walkers and dentures.
Anyway, sorry. That’s all I got today.
