You knit me in my mother's womb

"How interesting!" I thought, as I reflected on these words of Psalm 139 . . .

"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb . . . . When I was being made in secret, fashioned as in the depths of the earth."

Are these words still relevant today, for a generation where so many are created in a petri dish? What will these words mean to them, knowing they were not "made in secret?"

There is, of course, still the mystery of life and our belief that God is the ultimate Creator, fashioning each of us in his way. But for those who might not be able to look beyond the laboratory, to the mystery of life, or who might think that man creates, these words will be empty.

I was watching a television show one day and was listening to a doctor talk about fertility treatments. In the discussion, he said something like, "We don't make twins as often today as we used to."

He stopped me dead in my tracks. "We" don't make twins? Since when does man create? I thought to myself.

We have simply gone too far. I will stick with the words of Scripture that emphasize that "God" has knit us so wonderfully!

God bless,
