Miracles :: All or Nothing?




To be sure, Einstein (in this image) is not speaking of the existence of miracles but more to the ways that we live. Do we live as if God miraculously created it all or not.

That said, many do feel a need to take an all or nothing approach to the topic of miracles. Some feel that miracles do not exist because they regularly occur in life. Yet others claim that ordinary things like baby births are miracles.

My thinking is that there is probably a middle ground that embraces the working of miracles without seeing everything as one. Or perhaps we can simply see life itself as a natural miracle that sometimes confronts us with miracles that are supernatural in nature? Guess it depends how we define it.

What do you think when you hear the word miracle?

  1. I immediately thought of that song...."It took a Miracle"......I think the miracle is a sinner like me, can stand in pure righteousness and face a Holy God because of the cross, and the sacrifice Jesus Christ made in my behalf. I will never get over that miracle...cause I KNOW me.

    In live...I take your stand...there is a lot of middle ground.

  2. I like the word sign as a description of a miracle. It is something that shows that God is there and God is working. In this I do not think everything is a miracle, but I think the existence of everything is.

    1. I like that word too Mike. Even miracles like the new birth have outward manifestations.

    1. I think that is true Denise. Some see everything as a miracle while some see nothing as one. I am in the middle. :)
