Solomon is wise

Here’s what happened when Rupert and his mum, Anna, read this Bible story together.


Rupert is nearly 7. He is always on the go!

Rupert asked: “What is a wisdom?”



Anna said: “It’s not a wisdom. Wisdom is like common sense. If you are wise, then you know the best thing to do in different situations.”

 Rupert wondered: “Why did he [Solomon] say cut the baby in two?”

 Anna explained: “Solomon said it as a trick to find out who the real mum was because she wouldn’t want her baby to be cut in half. Solomon knew that the lady who said she’d rather give her baby to the other lady, rather than be hurt, was the baby’s real mum.”
