Beautiful things don’t ask for Attention

Psalm 19: 1-4

“The skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

When we look up at a beautiful blue sky or a blazing sunset or even a black abyss with sparkling stars, it is hard to deny the existence of a creator.

We become moved by His creativity, power, and care.

Yet, the sky did not literally speak to us, making sure we knew God created it, God is creative and powerful.

Not to say speech isn’t powerful, as it says in Colossians; “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt.” Certainly through our speech we can impact someone’s day, someone’s life! And God calls us to proclaim the gospel which often time means we must speak.

However, i think we open our mouths more often than we should.

If the sky spoke as much as we do, I believe it would lose its beauty and powerful message.

I think we also can choose to not speak so that God can be revealed to others. Our actions, our posture, our smile, our work, can all point loudly back to God.

Amazingly, though the sky does not speak, “their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

You are just as beautiful, even more miraculous of a creation than the sky. If the sky can say SO much without speaking, I believe we can too.
