Glass Hives

There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account.
Hebrews 4:13

2 Chronicles 16:7-9

One of the best ways to teach children the genius of God's creation is with an observation hive--a glassed-in colony of bees, all organized, busy, and productive. Each bee (with a brain the size of a grass seed) works with the others as wax producer, comb builder, honey maker, floral pollinator, military guard, and hive custodian. Observant children can even detect the bees' communication patterns with the "bee dance."

Perhaps you've seen a glass hive at a country fair or science exhibition. The queen bee, worker bees, drones, and offspring bustle about, unaware that observant eyes are watching their every move. Their hive, being glass, is open and revealed to all who see it.

In the same way, the Lord looks down on our world. He sees all our actions, hears all our words, and knows all our thoughts. "A man's ways are in full view of the LORD, and He examines all his paths" (Proverbs 5:21, NIV). Remember that the Lord is watching you today. May the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be pleasing in His sight (Psalm 19:14).

I trust in God wherever I may be upon the land or on the rolling sea; for come what may, from day to day, My heavenly Father watches over me.
W. C. Martin
