Wise Old Owl - Lesson 22 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs
A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
New Living Translation (NLT)
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
1 Kings 3
Solomon Chooses Wisdom
We can learn very much about wisdom just from the nursery rhyme - if we use our eyes and ears to see and hear, we will not speak as much because we will be learning more. When we do speak it will be wisdom coming out - even if it is a question. Solomon started out his reign as king with wisdom because he started by asking God a question. Because he did this and then asked for wisdom - he became very wise - actually he is known as the wisest man that ever lived.
We can be wise to. When we are wise, just like with Solomon - riches, power, and good times are headed our way!
