King Solomon was the son of King David and Bathsheba and the Old Testament shows us that he had a loving, respectful relationship with his famous mother. It is interesting that the first documented decision he made after receiving the gift of wisdom from God, was settling a dispute over maternity.
It may not have been his special wisdom that helped him make this determination, but a lifetime of experience with his own mother’s love to guide him. Nothing is more powerful than a parent’s example. We have the example of God (both the male and female [Genesis 1:27]) through the scripture and the human incarnation of Jesus Christ. Do others see His example in us?
