TOPIC: THE BEAUTY OF HIS CREATION
Bible Text: Song of Solomon 7:1-13
Key Verse: “How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman” (Song of Solomon 7:1).
Among those who’ve seen it in person, the conclusion is unanimous: Venice is the most beautiful city in the world, and the only one that can truly be described as unique. Each building is a work of art, with their beauty enhanced when reflected on the canals that cross the city. Its magical scenery is fascinating and breathtaking at first sight, evoking the feeling of entering the setting of a real life fairy tale. It is perhaps even unfair to all other cities to call Venice a city, as it is a place that no other can compare to.
The author of Song of Solomon repeatedly admired the beauty of the maiden in the text of today with detailed description of her immense favour from her head down to her toes. The passage today may look romantic to some, but to the curious reader, you cannot but see the hand of God being credited for all the beauty humanity possesses.
Those who teach and propagate the theory of evolution about man’s ancestors of apes and monkeys are clearly deluded and misguided. We see evidence of the creative element everywhere, from the beautiful flowers and trees of the field, to the singing birds in the air; from the beautiful scenery, the waterfalls, to the beauty and wonders of the human body.
All should combine to convince man that it is impossible to argue against the incredible – man is a masterpiece created by the almighty God and made for the purpose of showing forth His glory and majesty.
Thought for the day: Every living soul should not forget to give praise to God.
