Lewis: the poem itself

Monday, July 22, 2019
    Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles
But God made the earth by his power;
    he founded the world by his wisdom
    and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
    —Jeremiah 10:12 (NIV)
    In science we have been reading only the notes to a poem; in Christianity we find the poem itself.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Miracles, New York: Macmillan, 1947, p. 212 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 1:1; 2:1; Neh. 9:6; Ps. 8:3-4; 19:1; 33:6-9; Jer. 10:12; John 1:3; Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:2,10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I see Your hand behind all that is.
