Greetings, my friends, in the name of Jesus!
As I become more studious in my studies of God's Word, I am finding that the unnamed men and women whose stories are recorded are powerful. Their stories, the faith that they exhibit, the extra mile that they go to bring God's truth to light is exactly why, I believe, we do not know their names. God wanted to show us how the unnamed have passed HIS mighty assignments! Glory.
The Queen of Sheba, from the accounts in both the Book of Kings and 2 Chronicles, was a woman of great wisdom. What is fascinating about this queen is that she did not take the rumors and reports that she heard about King Solomon as gospel truth; she came face-to-face with the king. This queen asked many, many difficult questions of King Solomon, and she was not only impressed, but highly blessed by his wisdom.
Rev. Dr. Charles F. Stanley, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Atlanta, asked God's people to reflect today on the company we choose. Rev. Dr. Stanley advised us to choose our companions wisely. In his Morning Reflection, Dr. Stanley suggested, "It is essential to recognize that those that you walk with impact your life. Associate with wise men and you will reap from their wisdom. Walk with fools and you will face destructions. You must choose your companions wisely."
Friends, the Queen of Sheba chose wisely. She chose another wise man to be in her company. King Solomon chose a wise woman to be in his company. Today, let us choose wisely the people we have in our circles. Choose today to have followers of Jesus Christ in your circles. Be wise. As Proverbs 13:20 warns us, "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed." (KJV) Let's get wise up and get in the company of wise men and women.
