Black Swallower


food for thought header 2

Consider the small, blackish deep-sea fish popularly known as the “black swallower.” It sometimes swallows fish much larger than itself. Some have been caught distended with fish inside them two or three times their own size. Their stomach, mouth and throat are distensible, and their teeth can be pressed backwards. Their throat and stomach stretch like a rubber balloon. This monstrosity did not evolve; it was made that way as a unique creation, to show the versatility of our God.

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” – 1 Corinthians 1:27-29.

God’s wisdom and His sovereignty will always surpass the supposed intelligence of man!
