The Naturalist

I learned something cool today!  Well, I learn something cool a lot of days, and I learn lots of cool things every day.  But anyways, during my high-speed devotional for the day, while my computer was booting up so I could finish my homework…I read 1 Kings 4-5.  Once I’d waded through all the “he appointed all these people to do one set of things and he appointed this set of people to do another set of things,” I got to the coolest lines of the night: in chapter 4: 29- 34: “God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.  Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the men of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.  He was wiser than any other man…And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations.  He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five.  He described plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of the walls.  He also taught about animals and birds, reptiles and fish.  Men of all nations came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.”
In case you missed that…Solomon, the Wise King, son of David, was a naturalist.  He was gifted with insight into the natural world by the God of Creation.  How AWESOME!
The God.  Of the Universe.  The One that created all this stuff.  Is telling.  Solomon.  About how He did it.  WHAT?
Solomon, did you write this stuff down?  Because I’m praying you did, I’m praying that your writings are in some ancient library somewhere, that they didn’t get burned with the library of Alexandria.  I know this is totally a thin limb I’m standing on…but from a purely scientific standpoint….This is a discovery that would change everything we know now.  It would change our entire timeline of scientific discovery.
Juss’ sayin’.
