ON SEEING A PICNIC TABLE-PERCHING ROADRUNNER, FOLLOWED BY EATING BROILED ARCTIC CHAR
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
To see God’s doings, we’re able,
Like a roadrunner perched on a table,
Or, to eat fish from afar,
Like Icelandic char —
God is good – truly, that is no fable!
COMMENTARY: Acts 14:17 reminds us that food itself is a proof of God’s kind providence. [See “Our Daily Bread: How Food Proves God’s Providence”, posted at http://www.icr.org/article/our-daily-bread-how-food-proves-gods/ ]. Likewise, the beauty of a wild bird – even a neighborhood roadrunner – illustrates God’s creative genius and bioengineering handiwork. The beauty of such lively birds also exhibits the variety of winged wildlife that God has given unto mankind, to enjoy observing (Genesis 2:19).
