Something to Think About
God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.
For example: the eggs of a canary hatch in 14 days.
Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days. The eggs of ducks
and geese hatch in 28 days. Those of the mallard in 35
days; and the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch
in 42 days.
Notice: they are all divisible by seven, the number of
days in a week!
God's wisdom is also seen in the making of an elephant.
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in
the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God
planned that this animal would have a huge body, too
large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it
four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground
The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs
first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind
God's wisdom is also seen in His arrangement of
sections and segments, as well as in the number of
Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the
rind. Each orange has an even number of segments. Each
ear of corn has an even number of rows. Each stalk of
wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of
bananas has on its lowest row an even number of
bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row
has an even number and the next row an odd number.
The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the
minute in all kinds of weather.
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.
The Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a
hundred fold all even numbers.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain
specified times during the day.
Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had
a conservatory containing the right kind of soil,
moisture and temperature. He could tell the time of day
or night by the flowers that were open and those that
The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in
a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust
Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own
life, it will only be a mess and a failure.
