We’re never too young to enjoy object lessons. Yes, kids love them, but so do adults!
What guy doesn’t prefer a YouTube video over a written instruction? What kid doesn’t look forward to “Show & Tell” time in grade school? And what mother doesn’t proudly show pictures of her little girl’s first bath in the sink, first bow in the hair, and first drawing (even on the wall!).
Think God knew we were SO visual? Of course He did; He created us. No wonder He presents this continual object lesson to every human being every day:
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and godhead” (Romans 1:20).
The Creator preaches to His creation every minute that He is God. Just look up, look around, look down. He made it all and all of it speaks of Him. His exhortation to all of us is this: Listen up.
With this “visual” object lesson of the invisible One, the final words of the above verse make a powerful, chilling concluding point:
“so that they are without excuse.” (1:20)
No one can ever say, I didn’t know. Our eyes do not lie. Everything we see in creation evidences His handiwork!
