Fish

“Reality is like a fabric. There is a pattern, a design to reality that must be honored or the fabric tears or unravels. The classic illustration is a fish. A fish has two things that make it perfect in water; gills that absorb oxygen from the water, not the air; and fins that move through water, but not on land. The fish must honor its design. It is designed for water, not for land. That is a restriction. If it’s in the wrong environment, if it’s not able to honor the way it fits into the fabric of things, it dies. If it does honor its design, it is free to do all it was designed to do.” – Tim Keller


Acts 17:
24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’[b] As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
