It is folly for men to believe that they may overcome their nature. Today there is the talk of genetic modifications to plants and humans, to build ever more expensive missions into space. These aren’t inherent sins, but there is a danger that what animates this search to overcome ourselves and our boundaries is arrogance. We must make sure that with advances, it is done with trust in Gods’ overall design. No matter what we can claim to create or claim here on earth, our best will always be second to God.
LORD God Almighty, Creator of the Heaven and the Earth, awesome is Your power and meek are we. Bolster our faith to trust in Your design, and let us not stray from Your light in either pride or arrogance. For we are powerless against You LORD, and our will is Yours. Amen.
