Do you like to play outside in nature? Why or why not?
Proverbs 3:19. The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens;
God created everything by wisdom. What does that mean? It means that everything that God made is the BEST way for it to be. For example, did you know that earth’s distance from the sun is best. Any closer and we would burn up. Any further away and we would freeze to death. And what about gravity? If the force of gravity was even slightly different there would be no sun, stars, or planets. The amount of gravity in the universe is wise. Or think about atoms. Do you know what an atom is? Every atom has protons, neutrons, and electrons. If the size of protons, neutrons, and electrons were just a fraction different there would be no molecules. No molecules no life. The size (mass) of atoms is best. It is wise. Our air is best. Our water is best. Our plants are best. Our bodies are best. God made everything from wisdom so everything he made is what is best for us.
Some people don’t believe that there is a God who created everything. The Bible calls those people fools. Not because they are stupid, but because they reject God. It’s pretty hard to look at just how perfect the universe is for us and think that it all happened by accident without a wise creator. It takes a lot of faith to believe that there is no God, doesn’t it?
King Solomon’s father, David, said “the heavens declare the glory of God.” That means that creation shows us just how good and how loving God is. But even more than the heavens, Jesus, who made the heavens shows us how good and loving God is. The stars give of themselves (carbon) so there can be life on earth, but Jesus gave of himself so there can be eternal life in Heaven. And that’s the best and wisest thing ever.
Because of Jesus we can have both a physical and spiritual life that is best.
With Jesus we can declare the glory of God just like the rest of creation does.
DO SOMETHING TOGETHER
Go outside and look at the stars. Thank God for his wise creation that gives us life on earth and for his son Jesus who gives us eternal life.
Jesus, thank you for both physical and spiritual life with you. Amen.
