We See His Handiwork All Around Us – Take the Banana for Example!

Johnson, BruceSome of you may remember seeing the cartoon from Family Circus written by Bil (yes, one “l”) Keane where he uses a banana to illustrate biblical truth. I often refer to the cartoon as everyone is able to see a great illustration of God’s handiwork.

Mr. Keane reveals the Master Designer of Jesus as he did one day as the older sister is peeling a banana for her little brother while saying, “Whoever wrapped this banana did a real good job.”

What an awesome truth illustrating creation! Just think about it. The banana peel has to be one of the most perfect creations in the vegetable world.

And it is a great tool for illustrating the impact of sin as just as a banana rots on the inside before showing the total impact on the outside, so does sin in our lives! This talented cartoonist captured biblical truth day after day!

Of course, unlike the rotting banana, we have the Creator to deal with the sin in our lives, and the students in our classrooms learn more about Him every day!

1 John 1:9 tells us “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Thank you, Lord Jesus.
