Daily Devotional – October 6
Imagine a vase for flowers. Where did it come from? Of course, you would say that someone made it, but how do you know? Did you see someone making it? How do you know the vase had a maker? Even though you did not see someone making the vase, you can see skill and design. Even though a vase is a simple structure, it still reveals design that could not have come about by accidental change or chance over time. Someone must have made the vase. Why did she make it? Perhaps it was so she could enjoy the flowers she just received.
Now, let’s consider the flowers in the vase. A plant that grows flowers is unbelievably complex! A plant cell is far greater in complexity than any machine mankind has ever made. Photosynthesis alone is astonishingly complex; we are still not capable of unlocking the secrets of how it really works. How is it logical to say that a vase was made by someone but not the flowers? Flowers show so much design that they must have come from the mind of a super intelligent creator. That Creator is God!
Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
~ Luke 12:27
