“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” Proverbs 25:2 NIV

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, “God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight…He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. He spoke about plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of walls. He also spoke about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. From all nations people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom” (1 Kings 4:29, 32-34 NIV). Solomon was interested in everything. And the breadth of his 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; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” God loves it when we realize 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.
