Everything for a Reason
Everything for a reason? Well, consider the dragonfly and some interesting facts you may not know.
- There are currently about 5000 species of dragonflies and damselflies are known; experts guess that there are probably between 5500 and 6500 species in total.
- It is estimated that the top speed for a dragonfly is between 19 to 38 mph. The bigger dragonflies generally flying faster than smaller ones.
- Their wings beat about 30 times per second (compared to bees, for example, at 300 beats per second) because they have two sets of wings.
- A dragonfly can see all the way around itself, because its eyes have about 30,000 lenses.
So, why would God make such a unique creature? I guess that could be asked concerning human beings too. Why are we so different in many ways yet in other ways very much alike?
I truly believe that God enjoys and appreciates our distinct qualities and characteristics. Together, we all are woven into the fabric of His creation for His glory and purpose. Each animal, plant and mineral has its special place. Are you living out God's intended plan?
In Him we were chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:11-12)
