If King Solomon were alive today and heard or read some of the current news coming out of Washington DC, what would he advise the US Congress?

I surmised in a novel excerpt what King Solomon, based on his proverbs, may have advised the Queen of Sheba about the wisdom and use of an essential leadership speech attribute.  A foolish leader lacking this  attribute. will lose the trust and loyalty of his followers.  Only a bigger fool would willingly choose to remain his or her follower.

The novel is a contemporary application of a story form to promote understanding of proverbs and ancient wise sayings in relation to our modern times.


“Wisdom requires the ability to discern truth in order to make good common sense decisions and judgments. Truth is strength that will withstand the test of time. Falsehoods are fragile and will fall to the ground and be detected and discredited.”Truthful speech lasts forever, but false speech only for a moment. (Proverb 12:19)
