The marvel of being human


Today, as I was walking along the beach, peering into rock crevices and searching tidal pools for signs of life, I marveled at man's ability to think and reason. I love being human. It means I get to fantasize about things like dwarfs and fairies, while at the same time contemplating such weighty matters as the importance of the Pentateuch in the modern Christian's life. What is even more marvelous than the mere fact that the mind is capable of such great leaps, is the fact that it understands so completely that both ideas do not enjoy equal importance and should not be approached with the same level of seriousness. And all the while, this same brain, philosophizing the ridiculous along with the serious, is capable of regulating and adjusting steps and weight distribution to keep me balanced and moving forward over the rocks, without missing a beat on taking in the surrounds of the beautiful scenery, or keeping a watchful eye on the dogs running free around me. Phenomenal! And then I am supposed to believe that all this is due to some accidental explosion aeons ago? No! At last we have found something too great for my mind to grasp. All honour to God, our Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. He truly has created life to be marvelous.
