And they had great exploits together...

Have you ever been on a really good team? Not just a good team, but a REALLY good team. A decent team might have one or two really good players that carry the rest. But a good team is amply loaded and blessed with players that each shine bright in their own right.

My son plays waterpolo and he was on that kind of team this season. There is one boy on the team who has both parents—former Olympians in Aquatics. He picked the right parents. Though no one could outscore this boy, every other team knew it. So as we got deeper and deeper into regional and state playoffs the oppositions goal was to stop this kid. And they did. But guess what else happened? The team united and took a stand in the gap. They picked up the slack and they absolutely shamed the competition. United. Unified. Working together. In pursuit of something better.

God is building an All Star team. Each with their own set of skills and talents that advance the team. Each team member accentuates, encourages and uses their skills to maneuver the other players into a better position for the team to score. Great teams have strategy for victory and they understand each has their own role.

King Solomon was a man after God’s own heart. He had a skill set of wisdom that was unmatched by anyone far or wide. People would come from distant lands—other great leaders in the Far East, just to hear him speak and share something deep. On one occasion there was a dispute over a baby of all things. One woman said it was hers, while the real mother explained what had happened. Solomon had to discern...who was telling the truth? So he declared they could cut the baby in half and each woman get half. One woman said, “Good idea, probably with a sneer on her face.” While the real Mother jumped to her feet declaring, “No! She can have the baby.”

The people around gasped to see how masterfully Solomon handles the situation. Solomon knew something no one else—except the real Mother—knew...

The real Mother will always let the baby live.

Through it all Solomon learned the true content of each woman’s heart. Sometimes God introduces slippery situations and fiery slopes to expose the true content of our heart.
