‘It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.’ Proverbs 25:2 NKJV

Anything that reveals something about our Creator is something we ought to be interested in. Scripture is in a classification all by itself as God’s written revelation. But mathematics discloses a distinctive dimension of God’s personality too. Along with art, and science. The Bible says: ‘And God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore. … He spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five. Also, he spoke of trees, from the cedar tree of Lebanon even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall; he spoke also of animals, of birds, of creeping things, and of fish. And men of all nations, from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom, came to hear the wisdom of Solomon.’ (1 Kings 4:29, 32-34 NKJV).

Solomon’s breadth of knowledge gave him such a depth of wisdom that ‘from all nations, people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom’. Who sent those men? ‘The kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.’ As Spirit-filled citizens of God’s kingdom, we haven’t been called to avoid the culture but to inform it, instruct it, and illuminate it. ‘It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.’ (Proverbs 25:2 NKJV) God loves it when we realise something or encounter something new to us, even if our discoveries are common knowledge. Isn’t that a normal parental reaction when our children discover new things? When you keep asking the right questions, God will keep giving you the right answers.
