SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 25, 2021 (THE QUEEN OF SHEBA BLESSES GOD)
TOPIC: THE QUEEN OF SHEBA BLESSES GOD
“Praise be to the Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel….” 1 Kings 10:9,
A scientific writer of wide experience and observation stated that all nectar-gathering insects, such as the common honey-bee, manifest a strong preference for the finest flowers. The more perfect in form, colour, and fragrance, the more they are attracted to it, as they seem to know by instinct that there they will find the richest supply of nectar. It is from the characters and lives of those who are most like Him, that the souls of others can gather the most sweetness of God’s love and grace. To be Christ-like is to be winsome; to grow in grace and divine attractiveness. Queen Sheba heard about Solomon’s wealth of wisdom and glory and got attracted to it. When she eventually met Solomon and saw his glory, she concluded that what she heard is nothing compared to what God had done for Solomon. What report are people giving about you? Are people giving a report of God’s faithfulness or of your unfaithfulness? The life of Solomon made people that heard about him bless God. Pray for the grace to live a life that draws people to God.
Insight: Our lives can lead more people to Christ than our words will ever do.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live in a way that will lead people to You.
