Lindskoog: God's reality

Saturday, November 23, 2019
    Commemoration of Clement, Bishop of Rome, Martyr, c.100
    The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
    —Genesis 2:15 (NIV)
    There are great limits upon the human imagination. We can only rearrange the elements God has provided. No one can create a new primary color, a third sex, a fourth dimension, or a completely original animal. Even by writing a book, planting a garden, or begetting a child, we never create anything in the strict sense; we only take part in God’s creation.
    ... Kathryn Lindskoog (1934-2003), C. S. Lewis, Mere Christian, Glendale, Cal.: G/L Publications, 1973, reprint, Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1981, p. 48 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 2:15; John 1:1-3; Rom. 11:36; 1 Cor. 8:5-6; Col. 1:15-17; Rev. 4:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we acknowledge that You are the originator of all that is.
