The Elephant’s Trunk
The elephant has more muscles in its trunk than any other creature has in its wholebody, the number being not fewer than 40,000. Man has only 527 in his whole body. That is why the elephant’s trunk is so exceedingly strong, and at the same time so very delicate in its movements.
This is only one of thousands of wonders in God’s creation. The great glory of God’s wisdom and power in creation and providence are as far above our understanding as the sun is from the earth. But the glory of God’s lovingkindness and mercy in saving sinful man through Jesus Christ is the greatest glory of all. The more we read the Bible, the more, under God’s blessing, do we see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
(2 Corinthians 4:6)
