Why don’t you ever see the headline “Psychic Wins Lottery”?
Why is “abbreviated” such a long word?
Why is it that doctors call what they do “practice”?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
God put the “wonder” in our hearts to search for Him. We were created to know Him and serve Him. Until we find and give ourselves to Him, there will always be some kind of “wonder” to fill the void.
A seashell held to the ear makes a sound like the ocean. If we go 100 miles away from the ocean, it will still make that distinct ocean sound. That is because it was created for the ocean.
We can go as far away from God as humanly possible and our heart will still produce a cry to know God, because we were created for Him.
If you sense something missing in your life, begin your pursuit of God today.
