There once was a king named Solomon. God had given him wisdom, so he was the wisest man in the land. Two women came to him one day. The first woman said to him, " This woman and I live in the same house. We both had babies. This woman rolled over while she slept and suffocated her child. Since she was so heartbroken she switched her baby with mine while I slept, so that this morning I woke up and my baby was dead. But then I realized it wasn't my baby, but hers. But she says it isn't. Who is right?" King Solomon had the remaining child brought to him. "Cut him in half, and give each women one half. Then they shall be even," he ordered. How did this help solve the problem????
