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).
