Goodness

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Goodness

The natural world itself is evidence of God. He has created it and it is good indeed. As a scientist by training, I realize that humans can never fully understand His ways. We cannot create a single living cell and we struggle to combat many of nature’s forces; yet, many do not believe and arrogantly think that humans can learn to control everything. Over time, God has blessed us with much knowledge and certainly major strides have been made in many of our professions; but, He is still in control and we need to gain that wisdom. He will continue to pour out His Love because He loves us and wants us to enjoy His goodness.

Wisdom

B24E5C11-A8B1-451B-9046-0F9D2B146234“And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore,”
‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Inspired by my maternal grandmother Sarah (my daughter, the creator of the art on this BLOG, is her namesake), when asked as a small child what I wanted to be, I would say a Thinker! At that point in my life, I knew nothing of The Thinker (French: Le Penseur), the bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin. (One of my favorite art pieces and featured in one of my favorite movies, Midnight in Paris) My grandmother would tell me about the wisdom of Solomon and I longed to be a wise man. Sometimes I don’t make the best decisions, but I have learned that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” Proverbs‬ ‭9:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬.
