The Wonders

5 Many, Lord my God,
    are the wonders you have done,
    the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you;
    were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
    they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5

Will we ever know all the wonders He has performed? In Heaven will that be the case? It’s doubtful because there are just so many out there, and each of us are only able to see bits and pieces of those wonders: the sunrise and sunset, a newborn, a life changed for Christ, the wisdom of a grandmother, nature, the skies at night, and microscopic organisms to name a few.

On earth we get to explore these wonders each day, that is, if we want. Maintaining a healthy curiosity for things we don’t understand is a great way to explore these wonders. Appreciating the beautiful things we see is another.

The New Testament puts it a slightly different way:

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Philippians 2:1-4
