Search Out the Matter

©Millie McNabb

At the health conference I attended recently, there were a number of minerals about which the speaker said, “This mineral is essential for health because it affects such and such. We don’t know how it works, but we know we need it.”

Man has been seeking to understand the human body for centuries and still there are aspects that defy explanation. Scientists seek the Unified Field Theory that will explain everything, but it remains an open topic of research. Proverbs 25:2 says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.”

One of the skills to teach our children, whether home-, private-, or public-schooled, is how to search out a matter. At an early age each of our girls learned to use the library. It was a treasure hunt to find your topic in the electronic card file, identify the area of the library where those resources were, and then go get the specific books.

Have you had any adventures searching out a matter?

God bless….
