Adam



Another interesting thing I learned from Michael Ballam last week: You are familiar with this painting Michelangelo made called The Creation of Adam, and you probably know he was rather famous for digging up dead bodies and making detailed drawings of muscles and organs and etc....but, have you ever noticed that in this painting, behind God, there is a heart? Or maybe, God and these angels are inside this human heart!

Is this not Cool?

Pepek, I have never noticed it and it makes me love the painting even more.

I think you have a point with 'Or maybe, God and these angels are inside this human heart!' Two reasons : God said that 'I will live in you if you follow my commandments.' And He said that He is the Word and He wrote His word and commandments on our hearts. If He is the Word then it proves that He lives in our hearts.

Anyhow, that is my 2 cents worth.

Now, forever more, whenever you see this painting, you'll think, O, look at that! There is a heart behind God, and almost nobody knows it's there...but I know.
