I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him (Ecclesiastes 3:14).
I first began writing posts regularly on Facebook nearly 2 years ago. Then earlier this year I started writing on this blog 4-5 times per week as it provides a better forum for longer posts. The act of regular writing gives a weird sense of the days rushing at you and then passing on by. Each post is fleeting; perhaps read by a handful of people and then forgotten. Sure, it can be conjured up again by the magic of a search engine, but why bother? These words have some sense of permanence, but they are basically vapor. I could go back and re-read old posts and probably find typos and better ways to word things, but again, why bother?
On the other hand, the works of God are not only permanent, they are also perfect. There is no reason for God to go back and make changes to his creative works. It is a reminder of the vast chasm that separates us creatures from our Creator. It is a reminder that God should be feared because he is awesome even beyond our wildest imaginations. He is the holy, infinite, perfect, transcendent God. I am none of those things and neither are you. Our works will not endure. Our works could be added to and taken from and most often be vastly improved. We are not God and for that I am thankful. Only he is worthy of our praise and our worship.
