Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something entirely unrelated.
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. Proverbs 25:2.
Our family watched one of the DVDs in the series: Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Christian Families 10 DVD Set Vision Forum last night. The speaker strongly encouraged us to develop a multi-generational entrepreneurial vision for our family. However, one of the comments stuck in my mind – he mentioned several times that the good fortune his family received on occasion was purely serendipitous.
While it probably was not what he was looking for, perhaps the glory should be directed to the one that supplies all our needs. As previously pointed out, nothing is really by chance. It is our Father’s glory to conceal something and our job to seek it out. And when we do find it, the glory belongs to Him.
