Hubble, Zoos, and Singing Children
Praise him, all you shining stars,
What do the Hubble Space Telescope, a zoo, and singing children have in common? According to the teaching of Psalm 148, we could conclude that they all point to God’s magnificent creation.
The idea that God created our world is often questioned, so perhaps it’s a good time for a reminder of the praise we and all creation should heap on our Heavenly Father for His magnificent handiwork.
The Hubble Space Telescope can help us with that through its popping pictures of our universe. Every one of those brilliant photos points to stars that focus attention on God’s creative majesty.” Praise Him, all you shining stars.” Says verse 3
A visit to a zoo points us to the great diversity of wildlife God created. We look at verses seven and ten and say thank you to God for sea creatures, wild animals, insects and birds.
And a few minutes of watching little children singing uninhibited praises to God symbolizes the truth that all people of earth should lift their voices in honor of our Creator (vv.11-13)
Stars, animals, and children: “Let them praise the name of the Lord for his name alone is exalted”(v.13). Let’s join in saying thanks for His creation. “Praise the Lord!”
