It never ceases to amaze me that I can bring my car into the shop at eight in the morning worrying whether or not it will actually make it there and by the time I get a call a few hours later, it’s almost as good as new.
I don’t understand all of the components of a car. I could probably fool someone for a while but soon enough the other person will realize that my automotive knowledge is fairly limited. The more foreign the problem is to my understanding, the more amazed I am that there are people who can diagnose and fix the problem.
What about the human body? Scientists are daily scratching their heads trying to figure out how something SO complex could be ever imagined, planned, and created.
Thousands of years ago a man named David wrote to God “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous – and how well I know it. Psalm 139:14 (NLT)” It’s often not until we get sick before we recognize how incredibly intricate our bodies are and that the slightest variance can be fatal. May I suggest that we take time today, sick or well, and thank God that He put that much work into us? Isn’t it beautiful that He cares that much about the lives of you and me?
