The heavens declare His glory

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 8 (day six).
“When I consider your heavens” (vs 3)  If God is the creator of the material world (as Christians believe) then it is reasonable to expect all things to echo and reflect His character.  A sweet child doesn’t paint an ugly cruel picture.  His “nature” is revealed in what he creates.  So with God.   To be out in nature can, therefore, be  a spiritual experience.  “The heavens declare your glory”  says Psalm 19:1.  “Consider the lilies of the field” counseled Jesus to His disciples.  As Wendell Berry says,  “The best argument for God is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup”.  In Romans 1:20, the Bible says , “For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes, His eternal plan and divine nature have been clearly seen through what has been made“.  Part of the weakness of this present generation is our exile from natural things–our blindness to the creator who made them.
