Who Made It?

One of the great names of British science, mathematics, and philosophy is Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727).

There’s an old story that Newton had someone make for him a miniature model of the solar system.

A large golden ball representing the sun was at its center and around it revolved smaller spheres, representing the planets.

They were each kept in an orbit relatively the same as in the real solar system.

By means of rods, cogwheels, and belts they all moved around the center gold ball in exact precision.

A friend called on the Isaac Newton one day while he was studying the model. The friend was not a believer in the biblical doctrine of creation.

The friend said, “My, Newton, what an exquisite thing. Who made it for you?”

Newton answered: “Nobody.”

The man said: “Nobody?”

Newton repeated: “That’s right. I said nobody. All of these balls and cogs and belts and gears just happened to come together, and wonder of wonders, by chance they begin revolving in their set orbits with perfect timing.”

The Bible says in Psalm 14The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."

We understand that anything created points to a creator. The entire message of Genesis chapters 1 and 2 is summarized in the first verse of Genesis 1: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Be reminded today that God made you for His glory!
