The world got along fine before computers, cell phones, e-mail and “things” so many think are “essential.”
Our business success, too, seems to depend on these modern conveniences, as we truly have hundreds of daily correspondences.
Much of the e-mail is deleted, but we also get considerable valuable information. One that we’ve gotten before struck an even deeper cord this time.
Despite all of the astonishing inventions of communications, and incomprehensible scientific developments, none surpass those that have been here since the beginning of time.
These “repeated facts” deserve being thought about again:
Eggs of the potato bug hatch in seven days; those of the canary in 14 days; the barnyard hen in 21 days; ducks and geese in 28 days; the mallard in 35 days; parrot and ostriches in 42 days.
They are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week.
All four legs of an elephant bend forward in the same direction, unlike any other animal, so the elephant can rise from the ground, without putting its entire weight on two legs.
Horses rise from the ground on two front legs first, while cattle rise from the ground with two hind legs first.
Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind, and an orange has an even number of segments.
Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number, and the next row an odd number.
An ear of corn has an even number of rows. All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, in specified thirtyfold, sixtyfold, and hundredfold, all even numbers. T
Certain flowers blossom at certain specified times during the day.
Waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
Even today’s smartest human scientists and inventors haven’t been able to match these unique natural characteristics of living and growing plants and animals.
Reminds us of Romans 1:20: “Ever since creation of the world, His invisible attributes have been clearly seen.” Thus, First Kings 10:7: “Such wisdom, far more than one could ever have been imagined.” Likewise, Job 35:11: “God has the entire creation as a science classroom, using birds and beasts to teach wisdom.”
