Spring Has Sprung
One of the beauties of God’s creation is the ever-changing rotation of the seasons. With each new day, each new season, God’s handiwork is displayed anew.
It has often been said that “I will only believe in God if you can prove that He exists.” For the Christian, there are a number of problems with this statement which follow from the fact that man cannot possibly prove the existence of his Creator any more than a piece of pottery can prove the existence of the one who made it.
The seasons, however, raise some interesting questions concerning the existence of God.
- Is it a cosmic accident that the crocus comes up the same time each year clothed in majestic colors?
- What causes the crabapple tree to be covered with beautiful blossoms?
- What is the source of the rain, or snow, that falls to nourish the earth?
- Who designed the process of conception that produces the newborn calf?
As much as man says that he is responsible and that he fully understands the mechanisms, it is only God that can make these things happen.
So, when you spot that first crocus bloom, don’t forget to take time to thank God for His handiwork.
Scripture: Psalm 104
