    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 11. MONEY, SEX AND POWER

    11. Money, Sex and Power   I amassed silver and gold for myself and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem as well-the delights of the heart of man.   Ecclesiastes 2:8   Solomon had a harem, all right-seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. Historians tell […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 15. THE TURTLE ON THE FENCE POST

    15. The Turtle on the Fence post   Then I turned my thoughts to consider wisdom, and also madness and folly. What more can the king’s successor do than what has already been done? Ecclesiastes 2:12   I’m sure Solomon felt pressure from both sides on the issue of kingly succession. On the one hand […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 21. LEARNING TO ENJOY LIFE

    21. Learning to Enjoy Life   A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment? Ecclesiastes 2:24-25   Twice in verses 24-25 Solomon speaks of “finding” satisfaction and […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 31. HERE COMES THE JUDGE

    31. Here Comes the Judge   Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been be­fore; and God will call the past to account. Ecclesiastes 3:15   The wrath of God is a forgotten doctrine, even in the evangelical church. Part of the problem lies in our definition. When we use the word […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Sobriety

    SOBRIETY   Knowing When to Say No   Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. Proverbs 20:1   There are a great many references to wine, strong drink, and drunkenness scattered throughout the Bible. The earliest reference is in Genesis; the last, in Rev­elation. The […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Success

    SUCCESS   It All Begins with God   Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3   The word commit basically means “to roll.” It was used of rolling large rocks over the mouth of a cave (Joshua 10:18), of garments rolled in blood (Isaiah 9:5), of the sky […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Temptation

    TEMPTATION   Just Say No   My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them. Proverbs1:10   Playwright Oscar Wilde once jokingly remarked, “I can resist everything except temptation.” We smile when we read those words because they speak an important truth about the human condition. Temptation pays a visit to each […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Thrift

    THRIFT   How the Poor Become Rich   Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow. Proverbs13:11   This verse might be labeled “How to make money the old-fashioned way.” Anything that comes too easily won’t be greatly valued. That’s one danger of giving a young person an […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Motives

    MOTIVES   It’s the Thought That Counts   All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart. Proverbs 21:2   The man’s case was very simple. That he had been cheated out of his job was clear enough. That he had also lost his temper once or twice was also […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Open-Mindedness

    OPEN-MINDEDNESS   Take Time to Hear Both Sides   The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him. Proverbs18:17   Here is a piece of wisdom that could have been coined by Ben Franklin. There are two sides to every story-at least two and maybe more. This is the […]
