Enter as an Ordinary Man
British astronomer A. S. Eddington mused: "I'm on the threshold, about to enter a room. I move against an atmosphere pressing my body with 14 pounds per square inch. I land on a plank traveling at 20 miles per second around the sun. I do this while hanging from a round planet, head-outward into space."
He said, "Surely it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a scientific man to pass through a door. Perhaps I do best to enter a room as an ordinary man before I attempt to resolve all scientific issues."
This is Howard E. Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Don't take life TOO seriously. Frequent doses of realism—plus laughter—equal balance in the high calling of our daily work.
These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality , however, is found in Christ. (Col. 2:17)
