The beauty of God's law

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."

Oh how true that is. Working in the conservation field, I daily am in awe of God's creation. The honeybees we have at work are like looking at tiny little miracles as they make plans for honeycomb with their bodies and use their wings to create a vacuum to dry down the honey they've made.

It makes me wonder how anyone in the science field can doubt the existence of God when everything around us is so miraculous that it's obvious a higher power is in charge.

Amidst all his gushing about creation, David moves into talking about God's law in Psalm 19. "The ordinances of the Lord are pure and altogether righteous."

It doesn't seem to work with the first half of the Psalm, unless you start to think about God creating the law. He put together a certain set of rules in the Bible, and every one of those rules has a reason behind it. They are to protect us, and if we follow them, each and every one is for our own good.

It's not like some of the laws in this country, which can make no sense and are ridiculous. Some of them do more harm than good. However, each one of the rules that God sets forth is good. "The law of the Lord is perfect," David said.

That in itself it a wonderful creation. God has the perfect mind that not only makes beautiful things, but it makes perfect laws that will keep us safe and give us hope and a future. If we would only follow them.

Laws are beautiful? I guess when David put it the way he did, they are.
