Lent: Observations

Pick something in God’s creation to “consider” today. Today's video from SSJE asks you to do homework again.  And to use the original meaning of the word "consider" - don't just think about it, but look at it closely, and observe what lessons it might have for you.  What did you notice or observe?

As Br. Geoffrey points out, Christ often asked us to consider small things in nature - lilies (Matthew 6:28, Luke 12:27), ravens (Luke 12:24), the mustard seed (Matthew 13:31, 17:20; Mark 4:31; Luke 13:19, 17:6).  Is it a coincidence that the smaller it gets, the more it's mentioned?

So let's consider a subject of Romans 1:20:  "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead" or DNA.  The article linked there is the subject of study all over the world, and there's no doubt that this was not an accident of evolution, but a design of the Creator.

We won't ask you to study something as small (and complex) as DNA, but we will ask you to pick something out of creation today and consider it.  What did you find?
