January 19 2017 – Creation reflects God’s virtue & truth in countless ways.

Proverbs 16:11 says:

11 Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s;
All the weights in the bag are His work.

This Proverbs speaks to the fact that creation both concrete and abstract reflects and speaks of God in many ways. Because God is truthful, honest, all expressions of truth, even honest weights and scales, reflect Him.

Another expression of God along these lines exists in the accounting world. When figures reflect the facts, tell the truth, their doing so reflects God. He is expressed in honest book keeping.

Any skill or profession done honestly, authentically and with integrity, reflects God, because He is honest, authentic and has perfect integrity. When we act with these qualities we can only do so because God has given us the capability, reflecting that we’re made in His image.

Whether its in the use of weights and scales, book keeping or performing some other skill or task, these can all be done with integrity or not. Their use and practice reflect virtuous character or not, and because God is perfect in virtue, they reflect God or not.

Creation reflects God’s virtue and truth in countless ways.
