Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows his handiwork.
It turns out that particle-heavy air (moisture or pollution) dilutes the vividness of the sunset’s colors. This might be why modern city dwellers seldom see the heavens proclaiming the glory of God in the way the ancient children of Israel did. The dry, desert air made for stunning sunsets.
Our spiritual ancestors celebrated those sunsets as evidence of God’s handiwork. If the fleeting sunset is such brilliant evidence of God’s glory, how much more is the enduring beauty of a stone, a tree, or a human being?
MOVING FORWARD: Take a picture of something beautiful today and share it with a friend tomorrow.
