I heart technology. It is embarrassing how much I love my Mac and iPhone. No matter how many gadgets I invest in, there is always something newer or cooler out there. To make things worse, I work with programmers and techno-geeks all day, and they just feed the beast.
I marveled at technology a few mornings ago as I did something that I do a hundred times a day but take for granted: I checked an email on my phone and “automagically” my computer marked that message as being read. How did it do that?! I didn’t hear the phone tell the computer that I had read the message. So, how did it know? And come to think of it, just the fact that we can send a paperless message without seeing it fly through the air is amazing, and I’m not even taking into account the programming behind the scenes stored on itty-bitty computer chips so small you have to squint at them to see them.
As I marveled at technology and what the human brain can think up, I couldn’t help but marvel at the God who gave us such incredible minds. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 1:25: “For the foolishness of the Lord is wiser than human wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
Isn’t that amazing? Isn’t that awesome? The person who scored perfectly on the SAT is an idiot compared to God. The man who holds the world record for bench pressing is as flimsy as toothpick compared to The Rock. He makes the smartest businessperson in the world look like a pre-schooler.
Truly, our God is too wonderful to comprehend.
Too smart for us to figure out.
Too strong for us to budge.
And He is a God that is worthy to be praised!
