Here we go. Again. Another mugshot plastered across the media. Tiger's scandal will likely birdie Nixon’s WaterGate, bogey Brady’s DeflateGate, and eagle Clinton’s EmailGate. While society scrutinizes the mental and emotional soundness of a god they once enthroned, I am reminded that earthly prominence is fleeting and must submit to divine providence.
From the onset of creation, God fixed the earth on immovable foundations and “covered it with the deep as with a garment," allowing water to saturate this sphere and hold a position of prominence “above the mountains” (Gen 1.2; Ps 104.6). Then, God commanded the waters to separate. In obedience, the lighter parts took to flight and formed the watery clouds of the atmosphere, while the denser parts remained below (Gen 1.6-8). Again, God spoke: “’Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place and let the dry land appear,’” for he envisioned earth a terraqueous globe (Gen 1.9). In obedience, mountains upheaved, valleys sank, caverns hollowed. Waters fled into the empty spaces and filled them to the brim without crossing the boundaries God set “so that they might not again cover the earth” (Gen 1.10; Ps 104.7-9).
