Nature’s witness

“Even the stork in the heavens
knows its times;
and the turtledove, swallow, and crane
observe the time of their coming;
but my people do not know
the ordinance of the Lord.”
Jeremiah 8:7 NRSV

“The morning glories and the sunflowers turn naturally toward the light, but we have to be taught, it seems.”
― Richard Rohr

We just can’t seem to overcome our tendency to think we know more than God. This tendency keeps us from being the morning’s glory God intends.
