ILLUSTRATION: Perhaps you remember the old TV sit-com or have seen it on “TV-Land” staring Carroll O’Connor All in the Family. Archie Bunker often found himself at odds with his meathead son-in-law Mike. In one episode Archie and his wife Edith were having a discussion about God when Mike interrupts with the question, “What God?”

Archie is about to answer Mike when his daughter Gloria chimes in, “Yea, what God?”

Archie can’t believe his ears. He knew his son-in-law was an atheist, but he could not believe his daughter said such a thing. He looks at her and says, “Yous weren’t brought up that way little girl!”

To which Gloria responds, “I know Daddy, but we just don’t see any evidence of God.”

It’s my prayer that as we look at creation today that you will not only find evidence that the God of the Universe exists, but more importantly that you will know with absolute certainty that creation gives you the hope of a relationship with God.
