Pearl 205: A Body of Work

TOPIC: Goals and Publishing

"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 4:32-34.

Solomon produced a huge body of work from his God-given wisdom that covered botany, zoology, song writing, writing, and a teaching and lecturing career. HIs work undoubtedly required much time and effort to produce, maintain, promote, coordinate, and publish. What's more, the world beat a path to Solomon's door to hear him and see what God had done in his life. There are many lessons in his example for us to learn. Are you preserving your body of life's work? Are you setting goals to maximize the amount and quality? Who has access to it? What more do you have plans to do?

Lord, I have asked You for wisdom many times, and You have always delivered as promised. Today, I see that Your wisdom is not just for me, but also for others. Help me to properly value and honor what You give me, and then help me preserve and present it in such a way that others can access it and be blessed by what You have given me as well.
