Solomon and The Queen of Sheba

1 Kings 4; 1 Kings 10; 2 Chron. 9

Think! We Can Be an Example to Others

King Solomon became very well known throughout the land for his great wisdom. Even the wise men of Egypt were not as wise as Solomon. Solomon's wisdom was a gift given to him by God, and with God's help, he was a very wise king. The Queen of Sheba lived very far away. She wanted to find out if he was as wise as everyone said he was. She traveled many miles across the hot desert in a caravan. She asked him many questions, and there was nothing that he could not explain.
She looked around and saw not just that Solomon was exceedingly wealthy, but that even his servants were well taken care of. The Queen saw God's great glory and power through Solomon. She said, "Blessed be the Lord your God who loves you and has made you King of Israel."

God wants us to spread the word about Him. From our lesson today, we find that others can learn about God by how we live our lives. This is called "being an example" to others. The song we sing, "This Little Light of Mine" talks about "letting out light shine" which is just another way of saying we should live a good life and be an example to others.


Name five things you can do so that others can learn about God.

"So Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom."
1 Kings 10:23 (NKJV)
