What is the best thing about nature to you and why?
I was asked this question along with a couple others last night while my inquisitor grinned in a most terrifying manor.
My answer was that each part of nature exhibits the attributes, presence, and providence of God. Though I was much less eloquent and my inquisitor had to sit through five minutes of my rambling at ten o’clock at night, I think he got the point.
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world. “
– Psalm 19:1-3
I could not stop thinking about it this morning and finally understood exactly what I was trying to say. All of nature is a witness that God is everywhere except a tomb in Jerusalem.
