Sometimes the beauty of God’s handiwork moves me to tears of pure joy. There’s quite a bit of it in this video.
The whale shark is the biggest fish on earth: individuals up to 60 feet long have been reliably reported, according to Mr. Nature. It’s totally harmless, feeding entirely on plankton and floating fish eggs. No one has ever been attacked by a whale shark. Divers like to swim with them.
Going by reports from the 19th century, the whale shark was never common. It’s still rare today, and care must be taken not to drive this magnificent creature into extinction.
God won’t like it if we do.
Thank you, Lord, for creating awe and wonder.
