A Well Known Faith

1 Kings 10:1-9

[10:1] When the queen of Sheba heard about the fame of Solomon and his relation to the name of the LORD, she came to test him with hard questions. [2] Arriving at Jerusalem with a very great caravan—with camels carrying spices, large quantities of gold, and precious stones—she came to Solomon and talked with him about all that she had on her mind. [3] Solomon answered all her questions; nothing was too hard for the king to explain to her. [4] When the queen of Sheba saw all the wisdom of Solomon and the palace he had built, [5] the food on his table, the seating of his officials, the attending servants in their robes, his cupbearers, and the burnt offerings he made at* the temple of the LORD, she was overwhelmed.

[6] She said to the king, “The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true. [7] But I did not believe these things until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half was told me; in wisdom and wealth you have far exceeded the report I heard. [8] How happy your men must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! [9] Praise be to the LORD your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the LORD’s eternal love for Israel, he has made you king, to maintain justice and righteousness.”

King Solomon was well known not just for his wisdom and wealth, but also for his relationship with God (v1). The queen of Sheba heard it from others and eventually she was so impressed that she praised Solomon’s God (not her god). She acknowledge that God was pleased with Solomon and Israel.

How well known is our relationship with God? Or are we only known for our human skills and talents? Is our faith known to others around us. When people asked our friends who we are, are the first few things mention is our faith or spirituality?
