The heavens declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1)

Joel Kontinen

When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!" "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.
(Luke 19:37-40)

Even if we keep silent, the rocky planets and other created objects in sky declare the glory of our Maker: ”The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands,” King David wrote 3000 years ago.
