There is no doubt that the Lord would have us uninterruptedly occupied in holy meditation; that while we contemplate in all creatures, as in mirrors, his wisdom, justice, goodness, and power, we should not merely run over them cursorily and, so to speak, with a fleeting glance; but we should ponder them at length, turn them over in our minds seriously and faithfully, and recollect them repeatedly. For there are as many miracles of divine power...as there are things in the universe. (John Calvin, Institutes, 1.14.21, cited in Hoezee, p. 29).
"Among the many holy tasks of Christians is to foster, nurture and develop children's God-given sense of curiosity in such a way that it will still be there when they are adults. For this whole world belongs to God--and we should want to know more about it." Scott Hoezee, Remember Creation, 29
