The first thing that comes to one’s mind when you hear of King Solomon is the riches and honour God gave him. More to these is the promise that there has not been anyone like him before nor shall any like him arise after. Of a truth, taking a second look at the account of Solomon, one would conclude without any iota of doubt that none, I mean no one has risen like King Solomon in the generation of mankind.

Meanwhile, there is a personality in the scriptures that is greater than Solomon.  Although, in some circles, people might want to say He is immortal but it is clear from all indices that Jesus came in human form. His mother carried Him for 9months, born and christened on the eighth day. He grew up among His brethren in His home country- Nazareth. It is interesting that it was Jesus that made this all important statement ‘…Greater than Solomon’ Matthew 12:42.

Jesus the Lord was making reference to our anxiety and worrying after shelter. He then went ahead to compare our value to Him which cannot be compared to the lilies of the field which neither toil nor spin; ‘…and yet even Solomon in all his glory (riches, honour, wisdom and understanding)’. Matthew 6:25-32

Suffice is to say that, Solomon in all his riches, honour and wealth could not be compared to Jesus.

Jesus said ‘..Greater than Solomon’ is here is not an understatement.  Revelation 5:12 records that He (Jesus) ‘received all power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour and glory and blessing!’

Hey! He didn’t receive all these for Himself but for all who believe in Him.

Finally, we as believers have got a greater grace than Solomon through the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was rich yet for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich. We’ve got all through His death. Why not believe in Him and stop worrying because your riches and honour is greater than Solomons’.
