THE CAUSE

A university physics professor testified that he came to the university believing he had all the answers. “An avowed evolutionist, I knew all about cause and effect. I could begin with the present and work back. Behind every natural effect I found a natural cause.

“One day I was studying a specimen under a microscope. Suddenly I noticed a particle of dust on the lens. I asked whence came that dust. That dust was an effect for which I could find no natural cause. I had to admit that behind the dust was not a cause but the Cause. A speck of dust led me to God!”

(Hobbs, H. H. (1990). My favorite illustrations (118–119). Nashville, TN: Broadman Press. From a sermon by Matthew Kratz, The Wisdom of God, 6/25/2010)
