Theology I Learned from My Cat

As I was seeking the Lord this morning, Boaz came up to my tablet and watched with curiosity as I spoke notes into the tablet. That must have seemed miraculous to him. I wonder how much he understood of what was actually going on.

I began to wonder if Boaz would ever understand what I wrote by speaking it into being. Maybe he knows words like ‘no’, ‘good boy’, and ‘Boaz’, but I am pretty sure, he doesn't get but maybe 1% of what I spoke into the tablet.

Then I thought about how God wrote on the tablet for Moses in a language that hopefully, we could understand.  It took mankind over 6000 years to discover that there was such a thing as DNA. A finite mind trying to comprehend an infinite God.

Boaz was curious and he wanted to be near me. I think we can learn a lot of theology from that.

Are we curious about God? Do we long to be near God?
