“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
I think we would all probably agree with that. To some beauty is a statuesque blonde or a man with chiseled abs. To some beauty is found in a morning sunrise or an evening sunset. To some beauty is found in a work of art or a classic car restored to its original condition. To some beauty is a black Trek Emonda ALR5 (not saying who that may be).
Albert Einstein once said, “The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. He who knows it not, can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle.”
If what Einstein wrote is true there are many snuffed-out candles. I think for the most part people have lost their sense of wonder. Things have often become so humdrum the routine and ordinary takes precedence. Sad.
Psalm 139 is one of the chapters in the Bible where the wonder and majesty of what the psalmist is describing is word-defying. My desire for this week’s message is to show the wonder of God and also the wonder of His creation-human and earth.
I, for one, don’t want to lose my sense of wonder. Hope you don’t either.
