When the queen of Sheba saw all
the wisdom of Solomon and the palace he had built, 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. 1 Kings 10:4&5
of the Wisdom of Solomon along with the detailed presentation of his
elaborate lifestyle left the visiting queen breathless. A wise man said,
‘whatever it is you do, you must serve it with a little bit of dressing’.
This is slightly different from the usual window dressing; it is the
beauty from the inside that is reflected on the outside. The other day I
was in conversation with my nine year old, he was quick to caution me
not to judge a book by its cover; that’s true I said. Unfortunately we
do, in the same way we judge a person by the appearance.
do well to always remember the words of the wise man, serve it with a
little bit of dressing. When you think it’s done, go over it again and
make it even better. Usually what differentiates an outstanding
presentation from a good one is just the last effort you put in after
you thought you’ve finished.
Your success in life, a wise man
asserts, is in direct proportion to what you do after you have finished
what you are expected to do. Go the extra mile.
Receive the wisdom for the inner beauty and the grace to make it spackle on the outside in Jesus’ name
