So That Men Are Without Excuse

This weekend I took the family to see "Inkheart." It was a fun and adventurous romp with only two mild language issues and a scary scene with a monster named “The Shadow.” I predict great success for this film since it can be watched by entire families from 7 or 8 all the way up. Very few of those anymore that are safe enough for the little ones, and interesting enough for the teens and parents.

Before the movie started we saw the trailers of upcoming movies and I was especially fascinated by the new Disney movie “Earth” produced by a new imprint called DisneyNature. It comes out in April on Earth day and follows one year in the life of various creatures around the globe.

As the trailer played I recalled the verse from Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

I was mesmerized by God’s handiwork. Honestly, from the opening comment by narrator James Earl Jones that in all the known universe there is only one planet that can support life, to the final eye popping views of the creation around us, I thought only of Him.

How? How is it possible to see the vast glory of life on this planet and not realize, or at least ponder, that this world is not random.
