The lofty ideals of King Solomon​

© March 10, 2018 | Schulter Etyang Been reading through the book of Proverbs and oh boy, haven’t I been condemned by my failure to live up to the prescriptions and demands that king Solomon pertinently describes in his book? Reading through the book of Proverbs is like listening to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount – the famous Sermon on the Mount in Matthew Chapters 5-7. Solomon and Jesus prescribe and demand behaviours and ideas that require high levels of obedience and compliance – behaviours and ideals that are way too lofty.
