The Breath of Life

The respiratory system has many distinctive design features, which show forth the providence of God. Even as we study it scientifically, the knowledge we gain should generate continual thanksgiving, so that we might join the psalmist in praising God along with ‘everything that has breath’ (Psalms 150:6).
