God’s Stuff: Water Striders

So this time socialists and progressives and the rest are really gonna make us all equal, no shit, this time it’s really gonna work, all we have to do is put them in office and give them tons and tons of power over us, you’ll see, honest, there won’t be any more inequality or poverty…

All right, all right, that’s enough of man’s stuff. What bunk. It’s incredible that anyone can stand to listen to it, let alone believe it.

Let’s turn instead to a bit of God’s stuff, which always works.

Here we have water striders, insects that live on the surface of the water (but they can also fly, if necessary). Yup, they skim around on it like it was a skating rink.

Why don’t they sink? Because God created them with the ability to take advantage of the surface tension of the water. What’s that? Put some water in a clear glass and look closely. You’ll see it sort of curves up around the edges. This is why anything floats. If water didn’t have that property, distinguishing the surface from the rest of it, nothing, absolutely nothing, would ever float.

St. Paul: “[T]hat which may be known of God is manifest in them: for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made…” (Romans 1:19-20)

Yes, even water striders.
