Today in the year 1610, Galileo Galilei first discovered the three moons of Jupiter, named Io, Ganymede, and Eurpoa. Galileo is called the Father of Modern Science, and he had many discoveries, some about space after he had created a better type of telescope. But he ran into trouble later when he said that the Earth went around the sun–back then people believed that the Earth and humans were so important that there was no way that we were going around the sun! He ended up in prison for stating that. Can you believe it? Over 400 years ago, without computers or any tech, Galileo was looking at Jupiter’s moons, probably filled with wonder and awe.

One of the ways to live God’s purpose is to tell of God’s wonder and great works. It’s easy these days to forget about things like God’s creation, but when we see the mountains or a pretty sky, that’s part the wonder of God. And when God answers prayer, or when you can actually see him working in your life–that’s a moment to share with people. Take the time, be brave, and tell people when you see God in your life.

18 May the Eternal God, the God of Israel, be blessed,
    for He alone works miracles and wonders!
19 May His glorious name be blessed forever
    and the whole earth be filled with His eternal glory!
Amen. Amen.

Psalm 72:18-19 (VOICE)

Dear Father, forgive me for not noticing your wonder around me, I should be in awe all day long. Help me to share the work you do in my life to others. Amen.
