We have learned how King Solomon was the wisest king around. God also
gave him great wealth and treasures. There was no one else as wise or as
rich. There was a queen in the land of Sheba who had heard about
Solomon. She had heard that he was very rich. She had heard that he was
also very wise. The stories were so great that she could not believe it. She
had to see for herself.
The Queen of Sheba took a large group of servants and people, or a caravan,
with her to visit King Solomon. She had many tough questions to ask him.
When she came, she brought many gifts with her to present to the king. The
Queen of Sheba was very amazed at Solomon’s knowledge and wisdom. No
question she asked was too tough for him to answer. She had also never
seen so many treasures and riches for one king. In her amazement she
exclaimed “Praise be to the LORD your God. Because of the LORD’S love for
Israel, He has made you king to maintain justice and righteousness.”
The Queen of Sheba saw that God had made Solomon the richest and wisest
king around. She knew that God was the one to praise and be thankful to.
Our Bible verse today says “Give praise to the LORD God.” 1Kings 10:9 Let
us always be thankful to God and give Him praise.
