The Lifestyles of Kings II
Your Level of Wisdom
There are different types of Wisdom, but one ultimate Wisdom that no one can get is the God-given Wisdom. He blesses a man with it – The God-given Wisdom; it cannot be found or acquired with Physical might (Job 28). You do need the Wisdom to apply in all sectors of affairs, and you have to train yourself more and more. Information – Knowledge, as you may know, is Information with the proper application – that’s the Key.
The Four Hebrew boys sent to the Land of Babylon were there to serve at the Royal Palace of King Nebuchadnezzar. Still, before they could qualify into the palace, they needed to be well trained in all Languages and well educated in all spheres(Daniel 1). That is to show you how useful it is to be well informed when you stand as A King or a Noble. Contending for Mental transformation is crucial.

Many people live their lives like peasants, not understanding what they are made up of or what is required of them to do and make an impact. You must realize that you were bought with a price, which makes you know that having Value is one thing, increasing on that Value is another (1 Corinth 6:20). As a King, A Noble or A knight, you should understand that improving your Value on a regular interval is vital. The first Value you’d be working on is the Value of virtue – That’s your relationship with Christ, the more you get to closer Christ, the more treasurable and valuable you would be. And also your Value on Transactable skills – This is your physical virtue, what do you have to offer to the society, what are the skills you’re good at doing?. As a King, a Noble or a Knight diversifying in a lot of skills matters, skills in communication, handiwork, and every kind of Skill you’ve come across. Just like Paul wrote – He became all thing to all men, that he might, by all means, save some (1 Corinthians 9:22). The idea behind all of this is how to strategize and win souls to the kingdom.
Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will be stationed in the presence of kings; he will not stand before obscure men. (Proverbs 22:29BNB). A man with Great skills is like a man carrying a very bright light; it attracts people of great substance to him; that’s the power knowing and enhancing your Value.
But Rehoboam rejected the advice the elders gave him and consulted the young men who had grown up with him and were serving him.
