What Birds and Bushes Know That the Brilliant Godless Do Not

As Spring makes its long-awaited presence felt a little more each day, consider this simple gem from John Piper.


In the debate over evolution, be sure you do not become less intelligent than the beasts, the birds, the bushes, and the fish. They know something the brilliant godless do not know.

____________“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
_________________the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
____________or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;
_________________and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
____________Who among all these does not know
_________________that the hand of the LORD has done this?
____________In his hand is the life of every living thing
_________________and the breath of all mankind.” (Job 12:7-10)

Take the time to listen to the beasts and birds and bushes today. You just might learn something.
