On Bended Knees (Part 1 of 2)
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we get down on bended knees to worship the One who created our amazing knees!
While attending school, I was taught that my knee is a hinge joint – a rather simple design, much like the hinge of a door. But I now know that the knee is actually a masterpiece of design that could only have come from the hand of a supremely intelligent Designer and Creator.
Dr. Stuart Burgess, the aerospace engineer responsible for the solar array deployment system on the European Space Agency’s earth observation satellite system, wrote a whole chapter about the human knee in his book Hallmarks of Design. He refers to the knee as a sophisticated “four-bar system” in which two bones and two ligaments work together in perfect harmony.
On our next program, we’ll learn why God equipped each one of us with the complex four-bar system of our knees!
