Is That An Elephant Joke?
Two of 'em, to tell the truth. Of course y'all have heard the one asking how you eat an elephant. Answer: One bite at a time.
Here's the other one: What does an elephant look like to people without sight? Answer: Depends on what part of the elephant they touch(or smell).
Alright, I'll admit the first one was old as a mastodon, and the second was just plain lame. But isn't a bad joke okay to make a point? In this case, two bad jokes to make two points?
Point number one: God is spirit, so we can't see Him directly. And He is so big He could use planet Earth for a footstool. At least that's how the Bible put it so we beetle-brains could visualize it. A more accurate scale would make planet Earth—our entire solar system for that matter—just one itsy-bitsy atom in His footstool.
Of course we won't attempt to eat Him, or His footstool, but we can see and touch the tiniest bits of this speck of His creation we call Earth. To one, God looks, smells and feels like a magnificent forest. To another, the wonders of the sea. To still another, the vast, visible cosmos. Yet, each of these grand creations is infinitesimal compared to its Creator who is both infinite and eternal. So, fellow Beetle-Brains unite! Praise the LORD(The Eternal One) our God! Worship before his footstool! He is holy! (Ps 99:5)
