Handled Carefully

Today's reading: 1 Kings 3:16-28

Solomon's handling of a dispute between two mothers gives us a detailed snapshot of Solomon employing his God-given wisdom in a touchy and tricky situation. He had no factual way of knowing who was telling the truth. So rather than relying on his gut instinct or his best guess, he responded unconventionally, and in so doing was able to capitalize on the element of surprise to get an immediate, unrehearsed and genuine response from both women. Their reactions exposed the truth which allowed Solomon to then make the right decision.

How do you tend to deal with people or situations when you're not certain about the facts and/or can't ascertain what is the truth? Did you learn anything from Solomon that might help you down the road? Tami
