Is your laptop as beautiful as your flower garden?

Isn't the beginning of creation the spoken word? Isn't creation based in intelligence and patterns, math and the laws of nature? Computer coding fits into that idea. The knowledge dump that the internet has become bears the fallen nature of its contributors yet it is a powerful tool communication and connection, education and inspiration. It is yet another community in which to reflect Christ and speak truth.

That's not a flower garden in the photo by the way, that's a field of stubbornly invasive dandelion weeds. Why, you've photographed my lawn!<br><br>I love the sentiment of this article though because I feel that when we truly make creative advances in technology that the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree. Creativity is our Father's business and it is our image too. I think the more we learn about the universe, the more the Father is delighted that we would take an interest in His creation. It magnifies and glorifies Him.

Nice article, but I don't think Apple reflects an "emphasis on order."  It's more like an emphasis on control.<br><br>But I get your point.

One man's flower is another man's weed---I'm under strict orders from my dear wife to eradicate columbine from our property (after 20 years it too has become "invasive"), even though the orders are coming from a native of Colorado, where the columbine is the state flower! (Dandelion greens are tasty, by the way---and the flower can be made into a variety of things, including wine).<br>I absolutely agree with your statement on human creativity---one of the ways we reflect God's image.  Tech is as good as its inherent purpose, and yet it, like we, are tainted by the Fall.<br>
