Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I climbed a tree. Here’s a picture of it:

While I was in the tree I looked at the view:

While I was in the tree, I saw a worm-like creature on a branch. It was about one centimeter wide and five centimeters long. Out of curiosity, I reached out and touched it; it fell, but, as it fell, it caught itself with a web (the web was connected to the branch it fell off of). It swung back and forth on the web until it grabbed a branch and crawled on. While I was still in the tree, I saw a beetle-ish bug crawling on another branch (it was about four centimeters wide and six centimeters long). As it climbed, I thought, “It must have some type of defense, just like the worm.” So, I decided to see what it was. I started to shake the branch the bug was on. Obviously, one of its defenses must have been a very strong grip, because I had to shake the tree really hard to get the bug to fall. Once it fell, guess what happened. It hit the ground. So, what was its defense? A very strong exoskeleton. It probably fell about eight feet, which could still hurt a human. But, it was probably over a one hundred foot drop if you measure using its feet! About thirty seconds after the bug fell, I saw it walking back to the tree. It climbed back up the tree. As I was watching the bug, I saw some bugs flying, I think they were small bees. They landed on the leaves of the trees, regardless of the fact that they were swaying back and forth in the wind. And I thought, “If those are bees, I probably shouldn’t mess with them.” So I stayed in the tree a little longer and then left. God designed every leaf on that tree I climbed. He gave that worm-like creature the ability to make webs, He gave that beetle looking bug a strong exoskeleton, and He gave those bees the ability to land on a leaf while it’s swaying. If God put so much detail into creating those things, try to guess how much detail He used when He made you.

I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)</p
