” […]to know what is truly beautiful.”
What can we learn from the beauty and order we see in creation?
“After that God saw everything he had made, and look! it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31)
We learn that all the things Jehovah created, from the smallest to the largest, are beneficial. In addition, when you think of the amazing human cell, or see a newborn baby, or watch a gorgeous sunset, how do you feel? We admire these things because Jehovah created us with the ability to know what is truly beautiful.
“The heavens are declaring the glory of God; The skies above proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1)
“How many your works are, O Jehovah!
You have made all of them in wisdom.
The earth is full of what you have made.”
As is evident in creation, Jehovah lovingly set boundaries. He made both natural laws and moral laws to ensure that everything functions harmoniously. […] Hence, all things in the universe have an assigned place and function according to their role in God’s purpose. Jehovah sets the standard for how his creation should work together. Thus, the law of gravity holds the atmosphere close to the earth, regulates tides and oceans, and contributes to the physical order essential to life on earth. All creation, including humans, moves and functions within these boundaries. Clearly, the order in creation testifies that God has a purpose for earth and mankind (excerpted reading: Jehovah’s Purpose Will Be Fulfilled w 2017)
We have a built-in sense of what is beautiful. Order, Purpose, Function…Harmony…do we fully appreciate?
