Words of Comfort: Dog's eye

If you have a dog, look closely into his eyes, say a few words like “cat,” or “biscuit,” and watch him process the information. Then ask yourself how God could make his eyes, his brain, and give him the ability to understand English words. Then think of the billions of canine brains and eyes that have made since Adam. Consider the 1.4 different kinds of creatures like fish, birds, animals, and insects, each with eyes and brains, with their own thoughts and instincts on how to gather food, to bred, where to sleep, and find shelter, etc. Then meditate on how unspeakably great God must be to create all these things. May you and I then shudder as we consider how a blaspheming and sin-loving world has to face Him on Judgment Day. May we fear for them and say with the Apostle Paul, “Wherefore knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.”
