Imagine that! A banana that, when you eat it, is easy to grip, easy to peel, supplies plenty of needed potassium, and helps with digestion! Concidence? I think not!
Imagine that! A jack-fruit that can feed a party, is pleasant to the taste, hangs on the sides of trees (because it weighs 10-20 pounds, and would easily snap most branches), and is, plain-and-simple, fun food to eat! Coincidence? I think not!
Imagine that! Steel, that, when extracted from the earth, can be used to make cars, utensils, and bathtubs. Coincidence? I think not!
Imagine that! Copper that can be used to make coins for trading, roofs that display a nice green color, and can be joined together with solder, so that it can be used to make pipes that can carry drinking water! Coincidence? I think not!
Imagine that! Cotton and wool that can be used to make clothes, is a completely replenishable resource, and does not cause pollution to the earth! Coincidence? I think not!
Imagine that! Sand that comes from the earth, which is used to make everything from glass to silicone chips found in almost every electronic chip on the face of the earth! Coincidence? I think not!
If you answered, “Yes, coincidence”, to any of these statements, you’re missing the obvious. We’re not here by chance, and the resources that we’ve been provided with are not here by “chance”, either. Rather, they were put here by a loving God, who, like a loving father, “hid” them in his children’s sandbox, so-to-speak, so that they could uncover them, and enjoy them, and appreciate them.
“Yes, Lord, all that you created is very good, and we acknowledge that full well! Praise your name!”
“For by him [Jesus Christ] were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31a)
