There is an order to our world. Without order, the universe would be nonexistent, as many scientists are now understanding. For those that work in the world of computing, we enjoy the ability to use technology because there is order at the smallest levels of matter, the atomic level. The order is a very strict scientific principle that we are able to harness matter to represent data. In Christianity, the Bible mentions order in the creation of the universe: “Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years’” (Genesis 1:14, New American Standard Bible). Psalm 19:1 tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the works of His hands” (New International Version).
