“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore,”
1 Kings 4:29 ESV
Inspired by my maternal grandmother Sarah (my daughter, the creator of the art on this BLOG, is her namesake), when asked as a small child what I wanted to be, I would say a Thinker! At that point in my life, I knew nothing of The Thinker (French: Le Penseur), the bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin. (One of my favorite art pieces and featured in one of my favorite movies, Midnight in Paris) My grandmother would tell me about the wisdom of Solomon and I longed to be a wise man. Sometimes I don’t make the best decisions, but I have learned that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” Proverbs 9:10 ESV.
