The Story Of Solomon
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


Solomon's Fate...

Solomon was the wisest

man this world ever saw.

But even this didn't prevent

him from taking a fall.

The wisdom of God he began disobeying.

By all of the foreign women

he was marrying.

Even in all of his splendor,

glory and riches.

He sought a “new” fulfillment

in his wives' wishes.

He began building temples to foreign deities.

Neglecting his own God-given

wisdom and abilities.

His heart turned from serving the true God.

As his life turned into

a sinful epilogue.

May this be a stern warning to me and to you.

That our commitment to God

remain faithful and true.

All of man's wisdom can't save your soul.

For Jesus loves you more

than you'll ever know.

Run from the pleasures of this world...

in Jesus believe!

His eternal treasure is the best

gift you'll ever receive!

Accept his gift of eternal life

before it's too late.

So you won't end up as Solomon—

with a similar fate!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
