Mussels stick themselves to rocks underwater, in salty water. Their glue is better than any modern glue invented so far.
[Paul Humber of CR Ministries]
May I ask you a simple question? Do you think that mussels somehow “lucked” out in being able, over millions of years, to “make” ideal glue for holding on to rocks? Or, that God made them able?
I have a confession. I have a “secret” place in Ocean City, NJ, where I get mussels—a favorite spot among the grass-weeds. I reach down near the roots and feel for mussels. Boy, can they be firmly attached. Anyway, I pick about 10-12 nice-sized ones, smash them together, and place in my minnow trap. After locking the trap, I set it in incoming-tidal water about 10″ deep and return 30 min. later to haul in my 30-40 minnows for flounder fishing.
Aren’t I a “baddy” for smashing those mussels? The flounders, BTW, taste delicious. My mother (above) used to go flounder fishing with me. She’s been with Jesus now for over a dozen years.
The Lord is so good and abundant in mercies. He has packaged so many types of foods for us—and animals. Consider joining me in prayer:
Lord Jesus, I (we) praise You for Your overflowing tender mercies. You are so good. You give us so much—even Yourself on that miserable cross 2,000 years ago. You are the Bread of Life, the Vine, and the Living Water!
Thank you for Your great longsuffering. Continue to change hearts as You have been doing for centuries. Love…
