    The Wisdom of a King...When I am Being Oppressed.

    Solomon’s words, his proverbs, are so enriching to me. Throughout my research, I have come to realize by his own writings that there is no perfect man [woman] born on this earth but yet, through diligence we are suppose to strive for perfection. And in that search, I believe perfection can be achieved. Sometimes though, because of the willful intent of others, oppression is a reality and for me, I seek Solomon’s proverbs, David’s psalms, and other ancient writings to uplift my soul. Ancient kings and wise men who have lived, overcome their own personal obstacles and died, and their works do follow them. For me, this is inspiration.


    Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? For wisdom is
    better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be
    compared to it. [PROVERBS 8:1, 11]

    The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,
    and the froward mouth, do I hate. [PROVERBS 8:13]

    Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By
    me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles,
    even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that
    seek me early shall find me. [PROVERBS 8:14-17]

    I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
    That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their
    treasures. [PROVERBS 8:20-21]
