During Which the Author Befriends a Moth

This morning, a small moth was flying around my bathroom. It never once landed on me, but I'm sure it knew that I was there. The thing that impressed me most was the incredible gap between the intelligence and skills of the two living things in that room.

And that got me to thinking that this is a great picture of God compared to us (and still not even somewhat close!). I could no more ask that moth to build a computer that can map out the human genome than I could work and work to save myself and be holy on my own. Both of us are positively incapable of completing the tasks set before us.

This is great, yet humbling news.
