When the Queen of Sheba saw
… the deportment of his servants
… there was no more spirit in her.
1 Kings 10:4-5 (Darby)
The Queen of Sheba’s visit was a real eye-opener, and her overall opinion was informed by many things, one of which was the deportment of his servants. The way they appeared, conducted themselves and acted towards their king was revealing and clearly impressed the Queen. If she were to visit one of our churches today, I wonder what sort of impression she would form when regarding our ‘deportment’ towards our King? It could be quite revealing! Do we treat our Lord and Master with the same awe, respect and reverence that Solomon’s servants clearly displayed towards him?
