Solomon the Great
You know that story of the judgment of Solomon the Great - the story of two women who claimed the same baby. Solomon was sitting on the throne, and of course there were a lot of lies being told. He solved it by asking for a sword, gave it to the executioner and said, "Cut it into two and give them half each." The real mother said, "Please, Majesty, let her have the baby." That is a manifestation of love: "It is my baby, but to keep it alive, I don't mind giving it away."
