Basically wisdom is the art of being
successful, of forming the correct plan to

heart, the centre of moral and intellectual
decision.
Biblical wisdom
Meaning: takes insights gleaned from the
knowledge of God’s ways and applied
them in the daily walk.
The combination of insights and obedience.
Edmund Chan defines wisdom
As balancing the tensions of life in the fear of the
Lord. Wisdom is vital to leadership, hence
Solomon asked for wisdom from God. He was
asking God to give him the knowledge and
discernment required to build the nation as the
spiritual leader and King.
Solomon recoginsed his own limitations and hence
implored God to grant him the added acumen
for such a task.
Why wisdom?
Solomon started well as a king as he looked
to God.
He expresses his great dependence on God.
The fall of Solomon is when he move away
from God and started to bring in foreign
wives because of his weakness for women.
