Consider the Lilies

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.                                                                                                         Luke 12:27

As many of my readers know, I am fascinated by Physics. I almost flunked Physics. I am also terrible at math, and such high-level concepts make my brain ache, but I am fascinated by the many things I do not understand. Maybe it’s like a moth to the flame. Who knows why the moth is attracted to the flame that might just kill him – but the moth is just drawn to it. Actually, there probably IS a reason that a moth is drawn to the light, but I have never been inquisitive enough to look into that. Someday, dear reader, I will check that out and share it with you.

But today, I just want to talk about Physics, and the way that the world works. I am dumbfounded by those who deny the existence of a majestic and awesome Creator. Did that Creator use evolutionary principles and techniques? Sure, why not? Did the Creator plan the minutest details of life and the preservation of it? Uh, yes.

Physicists and astronomers tell us that there was a Big Bang some 14 billion years ago that brought life into existence. Further, they say, the universe created from that Big Bang continues to expand at an increasing rate. That “First Cause” (as Thomas Aquinas would call the Creator) was God. The same God, who set in motion this incredible, beyond words universe, which includes this insignificant planet Earth, revolving in one of a myriad of solar systems, is the creator of you and me.

While the planet we occupy is less than a speck in the entire universe, the inhabitants of that earth are of immeasurable valuable. God intricately planned it all, and the best minds of the world have no idea of the depth of wonder that God is still revealing.

Jesus said “Consider the lilies of the field” in his sermon on the mount. In effect he was saying, even the humblest little flower was put together with such intricacy and care, that man’s best efforts to outshine that humble flower are useless.

We don’t have to be scientists to see that we, and the earth we live on, are the incredible masterpieces of a God who loves us.

Just WOW, right?

Prayer: We are just in awe of your creation, and the attention to details we cannot imagine! Amen
