Scientists from Penn State University recently engineered a new kind of glue that’s both extremely strong and also removable. Their design is inspired by a snail whose slime hardens in dry conditions and loosens again when wet. The reversible nature of the snail’s slime allows it to move freely in more humid conditions—safer for the snail—while keeping it securely planted in its environment when movement would be hazardous.

The researchers’ approach of mimicking an adhesive found in nature calls to mind scientist Johannes Kepler’s description of his discoveries. He said he was “merely thinking God’s thoughts after him.” The Bible tells us that God created the earth and all that’s in it: the vegetation on the land (Genesis 1:12); the “creatures of the sea” and “every winged bird” (v. 21); “the creatures that move along the ground” (v. 25); and “mankind in his own image” (v. 27). When humankind discovers or identifies a special attribute of a plant or animal, we’re simply following in God’s creative footsteps, having our eyes opened to the way He designed them.

At the end of each day in the creation account, God surveyed the fruit of His work and described it as “good.” As we learn and discover more about God’s creation, may we too recognize His magnificent work, care for it well, and proclaim how very good it is!

Hi friends and welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. I'm Tristan Humbert and I titled our leading God's good glue scientists from Penn State University recently engineered a new kind of glue that's both extremely strong and also removable their design is inspired by a snail whose slime hardens and dry conditions and loosens again when wet.

The reversible nature of the snail slime allows it to move freely and more humid conditions which are safer for the snail while keeping it securely planted in its environment when movement would be hazardous. The researchers approach of mimicking an adhesive found in nature calls to mind scientist Johan Kepler's description of his discoveries.

He said that he was merely thinking God's thoughts after him.

The Bible tells us that God created the earth and all that is in it. The vegetation on the land, the creatures of the sea, and every winged bird.

The creatures that move along the ground and mankind in his own image.

When humankind discovers or identifies a special attribute of a plant or animal.

We are simply following in God's creative footsteps. Having our eyes open to the way he designed them at the end of each day in the creation account had surveyed the fruit of his work and described it as good as we learn and discover more about God's creation, may we need to recognize his magnificent work care for it. Well, and proclaim how very good it is. Today is Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Genesis chapter 1 verses 20 through 25 and God said, let the water team with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky so God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teams and that leaves about in it according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

God blessed them and said, be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth and there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day and God said, let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds, the livestock creatures that move along the ground in the wild animals, each according to its kind, and it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kind. And God saw that it was good.

Let's pray creator God, thank you for the unique and perfect way you created the world and all that is in it. Your works are wondrous in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today.
