Here is the story of a man
Who was ready to raise a family.
And here was his plan;
To marry a queen who is intelligent and godly.


He found a lady called beauty,
A work of art by the almighty,
Perfect in charm and beauty,
She was so pretty.
No cutie could be compared to beauty amongst the girls in the city.
Although he saw no compatibility of vision, dreams and aspirations with beauty, he was willing to part with his identity
Until he found out that beauty was a pain in the neck
Her vision for her hair, looks, bags, clothes and shoes almost made him a wreck
He had a car, but now he was beginning to trek!
He arose from his stupidity and bade bye to beauty.


He fell in love again
This time with a lady called brains,
She brought joy to his heart again.
Brains was a gain, so he thought until she began to trouble him again.
Brains became his pain-she would argue to win,
Cos she was insecure within.
He would say one, she’ll say two
And she’ll say three, when he said two.
They disagreed on everything and everything – Faith, family and finance
This brought an end to their romance
So he bade brains bye as a vowed not to love again.



Not long afterwards he met a lady called Character.
She was concerned about others, she loved to serve another,
She is not desperately in search for a brother, because she’s in love with her Father.
For the first time he met a lady that made him feel bigger, wiser and smarter.
He was ready to settle with character and found out she was amendable, she became everything he called her.
When he called her beautiful,
She became full of beauty.
When he called her brains,
She portrayed high ingenuity.
What rare quality!
This quality was lacking in brains & beauty!
Character became the queen, so intelligent and yet godly…

Listen up young man; don’t marry beauty alone, she can break your bone.
Don’t marry brains alone, she will fight for your throne.
Marry character; she will keep you on your throne!

And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honor, nor the life of thine enemies , neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king :  Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like – 2 Chronicles 1:11-12.

By choosing wisdom,
Solomon also acquired both wealth and long life.
So also in choosing character, one also acquires  beauty and brains
For character is dashingly beautiful, and character is oh so wondrously clever.
