Each day as I read a bit from the Koran, I look for something that I can carry with me in my head and my heart. Here’s my thought for today to take with me:
Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, and the ships which sail through the sea with that which is of use to mankind, and the rain which Allah sends down from the sky and makes the earth alive therewith after its death, and the living creatures of all kinds that He has scattered therein, and in the veering of winds and clouds which are held between the sky and the earth, are indeed signs for people of understanding.
These words remind me a bit of the teachings found in the Book of Mormon, from Alma 30:44:
All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth… and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
The Bible puts it like this:
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. — Psalms 19:1 —
I remember sitting outside on the porch one night years ago, staring up into the skies and suddenly realizing that I’d been created by the same awesome power which created the heavens. A simple moment. A quiet moment. Yet a profound moment.
