Lesson 4: Perceptions for Living
Solomon was renowned at home and abroad for his extensive wisdom. Even secular history refers to Solomon as a wise king. Many unbelievers would share the Christian’s conviction that Solomon was the wisest man that ever lived. Where did Solomon get such wisdom? Was he simply privileged to have studied at Israel’s leading universities? Did his father David, a shepherd b training, determine that Solomon would have advantages he hadn’t? Was Solomon blessed with an unusually high IQ?
Questions for LifeGroup Leaders:
Note(s) to LifeGroup Leaders:
- Please read most of the commentary to your LifeGroup. You may summarize it if necessary, but there is nothing wrong with reading it. If you are a husband and wife team leading, perhaps take turns reading to the group. There is valuable review of the Scripture passages and application for effective discussion. Use your LifeGroup members to read Scripture.
- The “Making It Personal” section is not designed for group discussion. These are questions that you might use to conclude before prayer. They are questions that prompt personal conviction and application. Please use them at your discretion to help your group.
