Solomon shared his wisdom in 3 great books
During his reign, Solomon wrote three books of the Bible. He recorded much of his wisdom in a book called Proverbs. This book shares the importance of God's guidance and philsophies on a variety of subjects. He warns us of the pain that can be caused in your relationships by lust and adultery. He warns us of the temptations of gossip. He teaches us about Godonomics: how our Father wants us to view money, generosity, and work. He teaches his children how to produce, profit, save, and invest. Solomon challenges us to be radically generous with our money, and entreats people to express love to God by giving Him the first part of every paycheck rather than just the leftovers. Solomon teaches us how to be good parents and train up our children in God‟s truth.
Solomon wrote a diary during the courtship of his wife called the Song of Solomon. This intimacy manual encourages chastity before marriage, telling us not to "awaken love until its time." God's view of intimacy and sexuality is so high, so pure, and so sacred, that it must be expressed in the context of a long-term loving marriage covenant. Solomon teaches how to overcome disagreements in marriage, giving examples from his own relationship on how to communicate effectively in the bedroom. He gave us God's wisdom for making the second half of a marriage stronger than the first. In contrast to many people's belief that God is prudish about sex, the Song of Solomon paints a visual, passionate, and loving portrait of intimacy in marriage. This book, a poem, was written by both Solomon and his wife in the format of an ancient play.
Later in his life, Solomon wrote another book called Ecclesiastes -- detailing the thoughts and yearnings of a mid-life crisis. In the book, Solomon reflected on how meaningless everything seems without God. Solomon ignored his own wise Proverbs and tried to fill the God-shaped hole in his heart with pleasure, status, beauty, and money. He accumulated everything. He consumed everything. He tried everything. He found that his soul was unsatisfied by all the trappings of success, pleasure, and status. He came to the conclusion that "God placed eternity in our hearts," meaning we have a longing for something everlasting to satisfy us. He learned that putting God first is the only way to give us lasting peace and real significance. He realized that “running from God” -- and engaging in distractions, even good ones -- never fully satisfy. We were created to thrive in relationship with our Heavenly Father. The human soul runs on God‟s love like a car runs on gasoline.
