Make Your Own Barcode… With God!

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Now I can make my own barcode with Google! Amazing days! Today is the 57th birthday of first patent of the barcode and to honor the moment Google has changed its logo to a photo of black and white lines like the ones now so familiar to us. They also suggested a link to a sight that generates original patterns and they invite visitors to “make your own barcode.”

One original me… even more distinctive than my fingerprint and more compacted than my DNA code. My essence contained and confined in a small virtual box packed with lines in a distinct pattern.

The Bible says that I am unique. In Psalm 139 the poet says that God knew me while I was still in my mother’s womb, that he wove my intricate parts into a specific pattern that he has designed and determined and brought into reality. It’s cool that I can make my own barcode. It’s even more cool that I am intimately known and “read” by the One who designed the real, not virtual patterns that make me who I am. I am known by God and even more, I can know him. God too has a barcode and he’s revealed that pattern to me. I can speak to him and know him through the revealed wonder of Jesus Christ. I can know and be known, speak and be spoken to.

“God, I thank you that am one of a kind. You have made me and broken the pattern! Thank you for my uniqueness and that you have also given me the opportunity to know you intimately. You have revealed the unique patterns of your essence as well. What an honor to know you and be known by you!”
