Some of the most profoundly beautiful landscape on our little planet are it's mountains. There is something about these brutal peaks that drives us tp explore them. And when we look at the highest of them we find out how dangerous they really are. The highest peaks on our planet are literally littered with the bodies of those who tried to climb them.
We know more about the moon than we know about the deepest parts of our oceans. These are places where the pressure is so great it will crush an ordinary submarine like an aluminum can. It an exremely dangerous environment for us to explore. Yet, we do it all the time. And, interestingly enough, every time we endeavor the to deepest parts of it we discover new species of animal designed by the Creator to flourish in such a cold, dark, hostile dwelling place.
As much can be said of the Rainforests of equatorial Africa and South America. There are still virgin jungles, yet untouched by the hand of man. And as we explore them a bit more we find, just like the deepest parts of the sea, new species of animal every time!
Even on our own home planet we find the vast beauty, mystery, danger, creativity, variety and undiscovered praise of creation that speaks of the character of our wild, untamed God.
