Painter

In God’s palette there are lot of bright colors for you

Nature glistens with the abundance of colors. Just think about the variety of different hues on butterfly wings! Think of orchids or bright coral fish: all of this is incredibly beautiful! God like a skillful artist has painted the whole world.

ILLUSTRATION: All of you together can view images of butterflies or coral fish. You can also see some images of orchids. God’s brush had not only taken the trouble to paint the small details on the wings of butterflies, but God has bigger brushes too! With His giant brush, God like a Painter, painted the firmament. The sky is most often blue, but during sunsets and sunrises it is tinted in a range of hues from yellow to deep dark red. Sometimes one can observe a phenomenon called “green flash” while watching the sun rise or set on the horizon.

ILLUSTRATION: View images of sunrises and sunsets together.

QUESTION: Why do you think the sky is blue?

While painting the sky, God the Painter established a law which physicists later called the “Law of Rayleigh’s scattering”. This law says, “The amount of scattering is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength”. Simply put, when the Sun is in its zenith, the sky is blue, but in the evening the rays have to pass a layer of atmosphere several times thicker than at noon, and therefore only the yellow and red part of the spectrum can reach us. By the way, this property discovered by scientists is put to use in various warning signals, such as red stop lights; yellow headlights are used for driving in poor visibility on the road (so-called “fog lights”.) The Bible says that the amazingly arranged sky preaches about God:

“The heavens are declaring the glory of God, and their expanse shows the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1.)

God had not just painted our world at random, but He had done it so exquisitely that people try to imitate Him in all of their own art!

PRAYER: Worship God who has painted our world with amazing colors. Thank Him for being able to see this beauty with your own eyes.
