  • MockingBird for verse 20
    Solomon was the wisest man in his time at the end , he was a fool For he took on many strange wives and they knew not his our God and they led him into worshiping idols !!! A fool is one that says 'NO ' to God It is my prayer daily to walk after the commandments of my Lord and Saviour . When God 's people hang around the unbelievers it will have an effect on our walk with God and not for the good !! I must be sensitive to God 's leadership.
