Here’s a sampling of Solomon’s advice:
- Seek wisdom and understanding above everything else. If you do, people will value what you offer as richly as if it were gold.
- Bind mercy and truth about your neck and write them upon the table of your heart. If you do, you will find favor in the sight of God and man.
- Help those whom you are in a position to help. Don’t say “Go away and come back tomorrow.”
- Take fast hold of instruction and don’t let go of it. Learn throughout your life.
