Luke 19:38-40 "Blessings on the King who comes in the the name of The Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven."
But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, "Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!"
He replied, "If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!"
I love this...God is meant to be praised! I never read this without wondering how the stones cheer. Do they cheer by rolling down mountains? Do they cheer by trembling so that they bump against each other? How does the earth and ocean cheer? Does the earth cheer by erupting like a volcano or an earth quake? Do the ocean waves rise up to heights we have never seen and crash into the land? How often does the earth rumble because we forget to praise God? Do we push nature to do our praising for us? Do the winds sound like freight trains because we forget to praise God? I wonder! What do you think?
